There was Tolkien, there is Pullman and now there is Katherine Rundell. Wondrous invention, marvellous writing. This book is her best yet, and that's saying something. Just riveting, quite extraordinary. * Michael Morpurgo * A marvellous imaginative fantasy told with great style and sparkle - a book to race through in a day and keep for a lifetime. * Jacqueline Wilson * Katherine Rundell is a phenomenon. She not only understands what fantasy is for and why children (and the rest of us) need it, but she crafts original and brilliant books that delight readers of all ages and kinds, while stretching our minds and filling our hearts. * Neil Gaiman * I love Katherine Rundells writing because its so fresh and vigorous, and always so unexpected. The world of this new book is so intriguing and so well put together that I couldnt resist it. Readers who already know her books will seize this with delight, and new readers will love it and demand all her others at once. * Philip Pullman * A book stuffed full of fantastical, magical delight, and a world of richly imagined wonder * Cressida Cowell * Rundell's book packs a punch with imagination and creativity in its purest form. She has created a story with potential to be adored by fantasy lovers for years to come. * Independent * Katherine Rundell is a prodigiously gifted storyteller and IMPOSSIBLE CREATURES is wildly good. Spectacularly inventive, it is both a thrilling and page-turning epic and a clarion call to young readers to use the special gifts of childhood- love, courage, imagination and open-heartedness - to fight to save precious creatures of all kinds before they vanish before our eyes. My Book of the Year. * Lauren St. John * Fantastically exuberant, wildly imaginative, impossibly brilliant. Rundells best, which is something to be marvelled at. It made me want to yell, or laugh, or bite something. * Kiran Millwood Hargrave * The action is gripping. Every sentence sparkles. You can feel the flutter of griffin feathers and the menace of strange poisonous shrews. Magnificent. * The Times * Rundells first foray into fantasy is both a deft, rich homage to the greats of childrens literature and an absorbing, profoundly poignant quest story for those aged 9+ quite possibly her best yet * The Guardian * Rundell is an extraordinary writer and this first in a fantasy trilogy grips, thrills and moves sometimes to tears. This richly-imagined story is packed with memorable characters and an unforgettable griffin. * Daily Mail * A rare and remarkable feat of glittering imagination from a truly masterful storyteller. * Catherine Doyle * A fierce, fantastic, wild-hearted adventure that roars and bristles with imagination. I devoured it like a hungry dragon * Sam Sedgman * With a delightful cast of characters, breathless adventure, and an abundance of myth and magic, Impossible Creatures offers the very best of fantasy * Aisha Bushby * A menagerie of delights. So packed with magic you'll want to take notes. Impossible Creatures is a world you'll want to move into. * Patrick Ness * Between the covers of Impossible Creatures is a world as enchanting, as perilous, as richly imagined as Narnia or Middle Earth. * Frank Cottrell-Boyce * A masterpiece to rival Tolkien and Pullman * The Daily Telegraph * Flickers with a rare and fierce beauty unputdownable. * Abi Elphinstone * One of our most talented writers for children * Observer * It is surely the next classic. * The I * A captivating story * Sainsbury's Magazine *
