I feel it's a new dimension in imagination and the prose is
beautiful. It is exciting and adventurous. * The Irish Times *
For readers who are attracted to epic but not quite ready for the weightiness of Tolkien, this is a perfect entree; for those who have loved or will love Pratchett, it's simply a must read. * Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books *
Only a writer with a masterstroke of imagination could place an entire empire of goodies and baddies within the fronds of a carpet * Daily Mail *
The perfect starting place for young readers . . . seasoned Pratchett fans will just revel in his wit, his subversion of tropes and his sense of humanity. * Kirkus *
A unique piece of high fantasy . . . Now very witty and politically aware in its revised version with the new ending * Vector *
