"It isn't every day that a novel for 8- to 12-year-olds reminds you of TS Eliot's Four Quartets, Dante's Inferno and Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey... Charlie's story is also a rare thing, a novel that will be enjoyed by those who don t usually like fiction. Time will fly as they read it." - Tony Bradman, The Guardian
