Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hand it to your youngest and he will undoubtedly be highly entertained by the saga of Dinah and Dorinda and their misdeeds; give it to your best friend and he will be entertained by the delicate satire on every page."
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."
The Guardian

"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
