"For anyone who loves words, Almond's books are a pleasure....So imaginative and layered." (Booklist)
"Besides providing a moving portrait of a boy's growing pains, the author expresses the camaraderie within a working-class community and the love within Bobby's family. Sensitive readers will marvel at Almond's ability to show, not tell, with his highly introspective, at times enigmatic, writing style." (Publishers Weekly)
