"The scene with Alec eating was fairly gross!" (I'm taking this as a compliment!)
"A classic fantasy, written, too, with great skill, a perfect voice, and a narrative that keeps us informed and entertained."
"It was cute how you played off of the idea of typical fantasies."
"I like your writing style. Straightforward and simple, but entertaining to read."
"The Piskies' riddle and rhyme is adorable and well written."
"Brilliant piskie riddle. Did you create that yourself? Highly imaginative."
"You're good at humour!"
"Excellent writing in every chapter"
"It's a good page turner."
"I read the first three chapters to my 8 year old son. He's hyperactive but would have stayed to hear more only my voice was giving up. I had to promise to read him some more later. I found it easy to read out loud and I love fantasy and dragons so I enjoyed the story too."My favourite comment this week is definitely the last one! Love the idea of a hyperactive eight-year-old sitting down with mum to listen to a book that's technically aimed at older children :)
Thank you to everyone who has said nice things so far. I'll try to include all your messages in the coming weeks.
