But prepare for shock and tears. -- Nicolette Jones (on Then, children's book of the week) * Sunday Times * Haunting . . . dangerous and desperate, but also full of courage and hope. * Guardian on Once * [Morris Gleitzman] has accomplished something extraordinary. * Meg Rosoff * Extraordinary . . . one of the finest children's novels written in the last 25 years . . . Narrative at its gripping best * Sydney Morning Herald *
