As funny and compelling as her Whitbread-winning Saffy's Angel ... the unpatronising, open, thought-provoking ending leaves us eager for more. Definetly a book to curl up with and enjoy in one single sitting. (Lesley Agnew, The Bookseller)
A welcome new instalment in the lives of the unforgettable Casson family, ... the characters of every Casson child go on developing. This is a rich vein; let's hope Hilary McKay will soon give Permanent Rose a book of her own. (The Independent Magazine, July 2003)
'Saffy's Angel is a delight from start to finish ... a great feel-good book with characters you want to stay with for ever. Warm, beautifully crafted and always original, it's pure fun - a book to recommend without hesitation.'
Source Whitbread Judges, as reported in Daily Mail
A funny, exuberant story. (Carousel)
A real feel-good novel, Mckay treats us once again to one of her brilliantly characterised families. This is a really lovely book. (The Bookseller)
It is a delight . . . McKay has a genius for domestic comedy. (Sunday Times)
McKay's strength lies in her understanding of young people and her ability to evoke them very simply. (The Guardian)
McKay has a genius for domestic comedy. Her books are also imbued with an ethos of tolerance and acceptance. This unconventional family, which was always fun to read about, and seemed laughable because it was chaotic and ill-run, has become, with our increasing knowledge of its members, a kind of model of how to make the most of life. (Culture (Sunday Times Supplement))
From the opening scene of a fat boy eating sweets until the exuberant ending, McKay's third story about the vibrant Casson family is entrancing. (The Guardian)
Rose Casson is the kind of girl we should all want to be... A great sequel to Saffy's Angel and Indigo's Star. (Family Interest Magazine)
'McKay has many strengths. She is witty without poking fun; and moral without moralising. She is subtle, too ... McKay has a clarity of style and a sophistication of approach that almost make the book as right for a nearly nine-year-old like Rose as for a 15-year-old like Saffy. And it's a joy for an adult to read too.' (Books for Keeps)
'McKay's strength lies in her ability to craft an unputdownable story from everyday happenings, and to handle serious issues and emotions with real lightness. She evokes the whole Casson family so vividly that the reader can imagine their lives going on uniterupted even after the book has been closed. Highly recommended.' (Bookfest)
Third book following the ups and downs of the chaotic Casson family, told in Hilary McKay's inimitable light and witty humour. Indigo's best friend, Tom, has gone back to America. Rose can't understand why he isn't getting in touch and is barely able to think of anything else. Her family seem to have given up on him, but Permanent Rose knows that where there's a will there's way - especially her will ...See all Product Description
