Anmeldelser

«A life-affirming voyage of self discovery – with a fabulously fishy twist – from master storyteller David Almond.»

The Bookseller

«A homely but equally zany tale»

The Telegraph

«A beautiful story»

Reader’s Digest

«Out of the ordinary comes the extraordinary, and visuals and text merge together to tell a truly magnificent fishy tale.»

INIS Magazine

«There’s no mistaking the hallmark Almond tenderness and the willingness to work with the common things in life, which animate the book from start to finish and make it good»

Guardian

«Atmospheric, poetic, beautiful»

Irish Times

«Fun, magical and enchanting. . . will appeal to readers of Roald Dahl»

My Book Corner

«Dahl-esque adventure. I thought I knew David Almond through his book Skellig. But this is more like the best work of Roald Dahl than standard teen fiction . . . Oliver Jeffers’ illustrations work as a brilliant accompaniment to this funny book»

The Teacher

«Its message hits home: give a child belief in himself and there’s no limit to what he can achieve»

The Daily Mail
