Some reviews of Kumari, Goddess of Gotham (longlisted for the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Award 2008 and currently longlisted for the Doncaster Book Award):

“A magnificent debut full of wit and humour…It’s wild, it’s whacky, it’s frightening and full of adventure. It’s an unmissable treat and the first in the Kumari trilogy.” – Lovereading4kids

“Powerful and touching.” – Glasgow Herald

“Kumari is a great heroine – feisty and determined but also sweet-natured and loveable and entertainingly fallible. ” – Writeaway

“An original mix of fantasy and reality. Kumari is a sweet, unusual and trend-setting new character.” – Chicklish

“Everyone should love this book…magical, different and has a baby vulture in it. What more could anyone require? I loved it!” – Sue Chambers, Waterstones, Harrods
