Product description

Review

This magical tale from a master storyteller is highly readable and full of imagination...The stunning illustrations by Alexis Deacon are as important to the telling of the story as the text, and this book will truly delight both children and adult alike. * We Love This Book * Hoban's books never float around the front of the brain but delve deep where it matters...this book is mysterious but not obscure, alternately funny and profound * Carousel * Walker are also to be congratulated on producing such a beautiful, physical object, with a fine dust jacket, fully illustrated boards, and different coloured paper to represent different parts of the narrative, and all for under a tenner. Alexis Deacon's moody pencil illustrations add a haunting counterpoint to the magical realism of the story, and have their own moments of wit...Every adolescent should have a copy of this one. Trust me, nobody will be writing stories quite like this anymore. -- Tony Bradman * Guardian * this wonderfully timeless and atmospheric story ... as attractive to look at and handle as it is to read * The Irish Times * magical ... one for sophisticated readers of all ages * The Sunday Times * This unusual tale for both adults and children is imaginative, magical and readable * Booktrust * Some have said that Soonchild isn't really a book for young adults. Well, it is and it isn't. It's a book for everyone. I'd read it to young children - all folk tales are scary. I'd read it myself for pleasure. * The Bookbag * any adolescent who'll appreciate this thoughtful, juicy piece of mythmaking is on the way to being a very wise grown-up indeed * Telegraph * The monochrome artwork is masterly and the words hold their own delights...certainly there is nothing quite like it. * The School Librarian * Ideal for children who like their stories more mythical. * The Daily Telegraph * I would love to read more from this unique and creative author! * Teen Titles * wonderfully strange story * Irish Independent * Atmospheric, poetic, beautiful. * The Irish Times *
