"In his first book for children, McEwan dextrously presents a series of strange and wonderful metamorphoses. His vivid and poetic writing, celebrating the creative abilities of a gifted 10-year-old, reveals a profound understanding of childhood." (Publishers Weekly)
"A delightful blend of serious whimsy and hilarious gravity." (School Library Journal)
"Mr. McEwan at his best." (The New York Times Book Review)
What an interesting and creative idea for a book.
Certain short tales of daydreams I deeply enjoyed. Especially, William Cat. This story struck a nerve and I smiled throughout the entire thing.
