— The Boston Globe
"A wildly eccentric adventure of two sisters who set out on a complicated mission to rescue their father from prison in an enemy country. With a motley crew of characters, including not only the obligatory governess but also a splendid dancing master, this is a gloriously unpredictable tale of escalating bad behavior, magical transformations, slapstick humor, sophisticated satire and, throughout, a war-time preoccupation with food, involving irresistibly detailed lists."

"Eric Linklater’s The Wind on the Moon (1944), winner of the Carnegie Award, is a wildly inventive fantasy that just begs to be read aloud.”
— The Horn Book
