Sunday Times Children's Book Of The Week

Verdigris Deep by Brances Hardynge

Nicolette Jones salutes 'genius':

What makes this book really remarkable... is the word-by-word, phrase-by-phrase, writerly care in finding the mot juste, the perfect metaphor, striking image, or resonant nuance. A woman looks at a child �absently as if to see whether she had been delivered the right package�; the feeling of being watched is like �dead leaves down the back of your jumper�; supermarket trolleys have �far too much body language for objects with no heads or limbs�. Genius.
