  • Joan Aiken is a marvel

    Philip Pullman
  • She was a consummate story-teller, one that each generation discovers anew

    Amanda Craig, The Times
  • Dickensian in flavour ... rich in atmosphere and intrigue

    Julia Eccleshare, Guardian
  • A genuine small masterpiece

  • Thrilling tale...stuffed with atmosphere, adventure, memorable characters and luxuriant Gothic prose. Any child who discovers it will fall in love, not only with Aiken’s writing, but with reading... The Wolves sequence has inspired writers from Philip Pullman to Cathryn Constable... Aiken was a genius, and her reissue deserves howls of delight

    Amanda Craig, The Times
