‘This is in one sense a classic English lonely-child-and-garden story, in the tradition of Frances Hodgson Burnett and Philippa Pearce; in another it’s a ghost story; in another it pays tribute to the dark-sinister-house genre most famously seen in Hitchcock’s Psycho. But it’s also a story of friendship and courage and of the power of black-and-white images. I think it’s terrific.’ – Philip Pullman
ACHUKA saw an early mockup of this book when we visited David Fickling in Oxford a couple of summers ago. Wonderful to see the project come to fruition.
