Wonderfully distinct, delightfully told and destined for a long life on the shelf.


The Wall Street Journal on Breadcrumbs

The Real Boy is an engaging fable about what happens when people reject real life in favor of pleasure, of magic. I enjoyed it very much

on The Real Boy

The evocative magical landscape, superbly developed characters (particularly dreamy, self-doubting, determined Hazel and lost Jack), and the piercing sadness of a faltering childhood friendship give this delicately written fantasy wide and lingering appeal.
