Mahy won the Carnegie medal twice, and in 2006 she received the Hans Christian Andersen award – international recognition for her overall contribution to international children's literature.Review:
"One of those rare children's authors whose books can also be read with pleasure by grown-ups..."--"The Telegraph"
"An award-winning children's author who tested the limits of her readers' whimsy and courage with fantastical tales of witches, hauntings, infinite fog, and robbers...Reviewers have raved about her whimsical yet hard-edged sensibility, her grasp of childhood's astonishments, her ability to leaven unbelievable situations with believable characters."--"The New York Times "
