Product description


Beautifully punctuated by Pete Williamson's black and white ink-flood illustrations. After surviving Fright Forest, I'm sure you'll want to follow these two into all sorts of trouble as the books take them out into bigger, scarier and ever more exciting worlds (The List)

Humour, magic and the altogether unexpected are woven together engagingly to create a delightfully original adventure. Elf Girl and Raven Boy meet by chance and soon become firm friends after Raven Boy crashes out of a tree and lands right on top of Elf Girl's home! Great illustrations bring out the wit of this entertaining and easy to read story. It's from the creators of Raven Mysteries (Blue Peter award-winning Funniest Book with Pictures) and is perfect for readers of 8+. (Julia Eccleshare LOVEREADING4KIDS)

This hugely entertaining and humorous story in Sedgwick's trademark gothic style will delight young readers. Perfectly blending the scary with the silly, we follow Raven Boy and Elf Girl as they bicker their way through their adventure, dealing with everything from hungry trolls and terrifying beasts to an unexpectedly unscary witch along the way. Pete Williamson's characterful black and white illustrations are a wonderful finishing touch. (BOOKTRUST)

For those of us who love Sedgwick's young adult writing, this offering for younger readers is a delightful book... We meet all the characters you could want from a fairy tale: trolls, ogres, witches, grumpy inn-keepers and two resourceful and bickering heroes. We see many of Sedgwick's recurring themes: the destruction of nature, the supernatural, children left without the protection of their parents. But rather than being a dark tale of the forest, this is an amusing romp of an adventure. The only true baddies are the trolls; even the ogre is apologetic. Written with a light and humorous touch, children can look forward to our heroic duo and Rat setting out on their next adventure to tackle the evil Goblin King. (We Love This Book)

I've been looking forward to Marcus Sedgwick's new children's series for months, even though I'm still mourning the end of The Raven Mysteries (*sniffle*, I miss you Edgar). Elf Girl and Raven Boy was well worth the wait (WONDROUS READS)

A wonderful story (Philip Womack THE TELEGRAPH)

This is a hilarious and page-turning romp with hungry trolls, ogres, a rather unusual witch, a friendly rat called Rat and more than a touch of magic. Readers from about 8 years old will love it. (THE SCHOOL LIBRARIAN)

This hugely entertaining and humourous story in Sedgwick's trademark gothic style will delight young readers, perfectly blending the scary with the silly. (Best Book Guide)

The book is all about never giving up and believing in yourself and others. This book is one of Sedgwick's best and the black and white illustrations really pull you in. I recommend you read it otherwise a giant troll will eat you! (Just joking!) (James, age 9 ANORAK MAGAZINE)

Book Description
