Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week

The Bone Magician by F E Higgins

The rich vocabulary - "unguent", "peregrinating", "dolichocephalic" - does not detract from the forward drive of the plot, and Higgins has wry, dark, witty turns of phrase. Peopled with bizarre and splendidly named characters (such as Deodonatus Snoad), this book asks to be read aloud, so adults can share the pleasure. NICOLETTE JONES
