Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"An extraordinary book. The Irish Examiner
A memorable and moving story. The Oxford Times (U.K.)
Certain to be one of the publishing sensations of 2006. The Observer (U.K.)
“This novel is extraordinary. It’s written from the perspective of an innocent and somewhat naïve 9-year-old boy, but the weight of what he’s seeing and living is felt fully. Readers will understand the seriousness of his life, even though our narrator doesn’t.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
A small wonder of a book. The Guardian (U.K.)
A book so simple, so seemingly effortless, that it's almost perfect. The Irish Independent
