Johnson's writing is witty and inventive ... This is a book full of fun
Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week
Thora is an irresistible new character ... storytelling at its best.
Starred review, Publishing News
Thora is a thoroughly modern heroine in a fantasy adventure story with a pleasantly old-fashioned feel to it ... Gillian Johnson's own illustrations add to the book's charm.
