McKay The Mistress of Her Medium - Guardian Review

Guardian Review

Binny For Short by Hilary McKay, reviewed by Linda Buckley-Archer

A past winner of the Whitbread and the Guardian children's fiction prize, McKay plays to her strengths in this nourishing and tremendously entertaining novel: she uses a small canvas and observes closely; her voice is warm, wise and witty; her language is economical and precise. Binny for Short shows a mistress of her medium at work. LINDA BUCKEY-ARCHER
