Reviews, News & Interviews:
An unputdownable, heart-stopping, white knuckle ride of a book. It will knock your socks off! Catherine Johnson, author of Race to the Frozen North
Fleur Hitchcock’s latest book soars… It’s a spirited, suspenseful adventure yarn, and its breathless action scenes and multicultural characters present a very un-Austen-like vision of Bath. James Lovegrove, The Financial Times
The Boy Who Flew is a cracker of a story: dastardly villains, a fast-moving plot, richly atmospheric scene setting and a host of lovable children at its core. A tribute to underdogs and ingenious kids from a brilliant storyteller. Abi Elphinstone, author of Sky Song
