No Such Thing As Dragons
"Conjured from legend and delivered via the capable hands of the award-winning Reeve, No Such Thing As Dragons is sure to set you shivering with a cosy fear."
"It's a classic novel for children from a monster talent"
"Fever's a great heroine... There are plenty of jokes as well as dangers, in this tautly written story. It's one that will grip good readers."
"You struggle to breathe as you read this utterly compelling adventure thriller."
"A terrific read, a sci-fi Dickens, full of orphans, villains, chases and mysteries."
"Reeve’s ideas are prolific but his narrative is taut, disciplined and fast moving… As always with Reeve, the book is intelligent and thoughtful as well as a page turner."
"This tightly plotted, fast paced adventure has all the answers."
"Any child over the age of ten will find this the perfect introduction to Reeve’s other writing, and fans will not be disappointed."
"Philip Reeve’s intricate imagination makes JK Rowling feel like Enid Blyton, but he is adept at creating likeable characters, subtle villains and situations where good is hard to sort from evil..."
