Readers’ Comments
‘What a lovely romp. Light, funny and full of rather quirky characters.’ Male reader, aged 54

‘Has a sort of P G Wodehouse comic feel to it.’ Female reader, aged 65

‘I loved the Shakespeare character the most; such a sweet little man. This story is all about character and character interaction. The author is a sublime writer, and has come up with a very different premise.’ Female reader, aged 43

‘Ally is a superb character. Interesting too. I liked how she handled the crazy plot she faced. The cover is so cool by the way. All in all, funny, a bit bizarre and even a bit sad.
Enjoyed this very much.’ Female reader, aged 70

To Sum It Up:
‘A fantastically fun, rather odd, comic novel. A FINALIST and highly recommended.’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
