"Sometimes a book turns up with what might be called instant appeal: you really want to know the next move, to go where the characters take you. The Changling seemed to me, as I read it, a book of that kind." Naomi Lewis, in The Newsagent and Bookshop "Amusing, perceptive and touching, written with ease and point, this is an almost classic example of the book programmed directly for young readers - none the worse for it, but proving, perhaps, that there is such a thing as a 'children's book'."
