Product description


Charming and highly readable (Times Educational Supplement)

A thrilling and wondrous adventure (The Sunday Express)

This is certainly unlike anything you have come across before (School Librarian)

A mixture of humour and extravagant action, this attractive fantasy is accessible to quite young readers simply as an adventure story. But it is a very thoughtful book, and underlying its invention and suspense are other layers of meaning. (BfK)

Praise for Otto and the Flying Twins: 'A sophisticated, elliptical fantasy that does not read like anything you have come across before. It will reward youngsters ... with its magic, warmth and excitement.' (The Sunday Times)

Romps along ... Haptie has taken a serious theme ... which gives this quirky debut a serious and valid undercurrent. (TES)

A fantastic read with a twisting, turning plot that ensures page-turning intrigue from beginning to end ... superb storytelling ... highly recommended, rip-roaring adventure ideal for children aged nine and over. (

Magical yet appealingly true to life, the much awaited follow up to Otto and the Flying Twins (parents news)

From the gorgeous map at the beginning, to the amazing talents of Otto and his friends, this is the perfect fantasy (RTE Guide)

I love this book. Told as a whimsical adventure full of colours, magic and sparks, it really is a child's parable about serious issues of suffering. . . . The plot moves along shakily as real children's lives do. Adults quarrel, young friends tiff and reunite, and every page touches a reader's sense of wonder. . . . one's heartstrings are pulled, and you long to visit them again and again. (Inis the Children's Book Ireland Magazine)

Book Description

The City of Trees is in the grip of something strange - a frightening upside-down world of ice, and the Karmidee are blamed. It's up to Otto and Mab to find the answer
