Reviews for “The Strangeling’s Tale”:

“Wow. Beautifully written, the way the separate stories intertwine into one is just magical. Carol has such an affinity with words – the language really is simply beautiful, which is not something I can say I’ve noticed to myself when reading other books but I was so struck by it here I feel I have to mention it. I cannot do her enough justice in this review! Will be eagerly looking out for further books of hers.” – Lauren on Goodreads

“What more what you want from a book? I missed my stop reading this on the bus as I got so sucked into the story and wanted to know how it ended. It is a very clever book with twists and turns that interlink. It is very well written and can be enjoyed by children and adults as well. I am looking forward to more books from Carol” – Cathie
