Scotland's Children's Laureate is back with the final book in the best-selling The Wizards Of Once series. Cowell, author of How To Train Your Dragon, reunites nine to 11-year-olds with Xar and Wish who are on a quest to unite their worlds in time to save the WiIdwoods. The duo are now locked in a rollercoaster adventure in which the Kingwitch is calling them to the lake of the lost. Pure magic!
Sunday Post
Cowell's short sentences and scribbly pencil illustrations carry considerable skill and humour, advocate love, and manage to be lively and momentous.
Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
Welcome to the fourth and final book in the absolutely sparkling Wizards of Once series... a wonderful series to be savoured by fans of How To Train Your Dragon. It's so well written, the characters and story come totally alive on the page - and Cressida Cowell's beautiful, expressive scratchy drawings add so much. This is mesmerising, truly captivating world-building. The final battle scenes are breathtaking, too - Cressida's imagination knows no bounds, and this is epic stuff! On top of all that, there's real wisdom here about how adults need to take responsibility to sort out the world, which is timely in this era of children protesting against climate change. A great finale to a great series.

Children's Laureate Cressida Cowell returns with the fourth and final instalment of her marvellously magical Wizards of Once series...The pages of this funny, clever adventure story are bursting with lots of exuberant artwork. It's a brilliant conclusion to a wonderful series.
The Week Junior
The final book in the Wizards of Once series, Never and Forever, is every bit as wonderful as its predecessors. Quirky illustrations and engaging characters make this a compelling read...This is a story full of action. The mysterious narrator is revealed at the close of the tale, having guided the reader through it, offering dire warnings and words of wisdom along the way. Many touches set this apart from other series - the antics of the key, the spoon and the fork; the satirical treatment of the children's parents; the children's wonderful entourage of companions, especially the adorable Squeezjoos, who deserves a novel all of his own! Mayhem and madness brilliantly combine to create a highly engaging series, culminating in the final story, Never and Forever, a triumph of fantasy! Five stars *****
