Sunday Times Children's Book Of The >Week

Nicolette Jones, reviewing Framed by Frank Cottrell Boyce (author of Millions), is pleased to find that the author is not a 'one-book wonder'.

What makes this book so enjoyable is that the writing is full of jokes and touching moments, and the dialogue is as lively and arresting as a film script. And yet the book offers more than could be shown on screen, such as Boyce�s startling use of metaphor. Driving up a mountain through cloud and coming out into the sunshine, for instance, is described as �like opening a cupboard and finding a beach�. NICOLETTE JONES
