5.0 out of 5 stars great, 1 July 2009

This review is from: The Undrowned Child (Hardcover)
A headless handless ghost that eats children. A librarian that tuns into a cat. Mermaids that run a printing press. A kraken-like creature that gives childen bubonic plague. All these and more can be found within this book.

Initially I thought this would be a typical '2 children fufill ancient prophecy in saving....', which it is to some extent. But it is also much more than that. the lines between foe and friend is constantly confused, and the characters are portrayed in wholly unique ways. For example,the mermaids; who talk like sailors and love a good curry. There is also genuine fear, for example the terrifying Brustolon statues that are appearing all over Venice. Finally, themes such as bullying, outcasts and friendship run throughout.

Overall an amazing urban fantasy for children.
