My ten year old loved it

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Okay- this is a rights of passage tale of a boy who loves and wants to breed pidgeons, but ends up saving the world! Its a beautifully constructed book with great character depth and highs and lows and the finale handled really well. My ten year old loved it and recommended it to his class tutor and...Hands up, I'm a fan of Daniel Hill- the narrator, anybody who has just read my other three reviews today will see that- BUT he is reaaly great!

I first heard this as a library loan a couple of years back- it is a dark tale beautifully told (and narrated). Hands up, I'm a fan of Daniel Hill, the narrator, he not only narrates older readers books brilliantly, but his work on children's books is astonishing! His character voices and energy are terrific. he inhabits the world of the book totally and give life to everything he reads. Amanda Craig's book is a must-read\listen.

I've just written a review for Daddy Goose Collection narrated by the same actor- Daniel Hill! He is really great and makes the characters jump off the page- with energy and life and builds the story beautifully- you may have guessed I'm a writer too, with KIDS- this is great work and anybody thinking of getting a few minutes peace from them should buy this and any others with Daniel Hill narrating! It was fun for me too!!

This is brilliant- brilliantly put together with fantastic narration from teh guy that was in Waiting For God and Only Fools and Horses- Daniel HIll. He's also on other audiobooks, like Ralph The Magic Rabbit- That one too is a brilliant book and audio- great characters and makes you really laugh out loud- get this and keep you youngest enthralled!
