Praise for The Fairy Detective Agency: The Flying Carpet Thief

  • Operation Bunny has got what it takes to become a classic. - THE DAILY EXPRESS on OPERATION BUNNY

  • I love this book so much ... It is an enchanting book ... If you like mind-boggling adventures filled with brilliant illustrations and strange talking animals, then do not hesitate to pick up this brilliant book. - GUARDIAN CHILDREN'S BOOKS on OPERATION BUNNY

  • David Roberts's spooky illustrations have a Goreyesque detail that is perfect. The poignancy of Emily's plight is offset by a buoyancy that counters the acid wit with which her world is described ... this brims with quirky charm reminiscent of Eva Ibbotson, Joan Aiken and early JK Rowling. - Amanda Craig, THE TIMES on OPERATION BUNNY

  • Wonderfully imaginative, full of quirky humour and delightfully illustrated. - www.parentsintouch.co.uk on THREE PICKLED HERRINGS
