Early praise for Otherland

Earlier this month we published Otherland – a darkly funny, action-packed new fantasy adventure, from the highly acclaimed author of The Dragon in the Library series, Louie Stowell, with cover art by George Ermos.

And we’ve been thrilled by the responses to the book so far – here’s what some people have said about Otherland:

“It’s funny, it’s kind, it’s warm, it’s adventurous, it’s brilliantly written!” – Maz Evans, author of the Who Let the Gods Out series

Otherland is fizzing. Jokes and gods and lashings of wicked multi-coloured magic.” – Hilary McKay, author of The Skylarks’ War

“This book is fantastic and anyone who reads it will be whizzed away on an amazing adventure!” – Katherine Webber Tsang, author of Dragon Mountain

“Entirely fresh and funny, and all so cleverly woven and written. I flew through it and giggled a lot…” – Nicola Penfold, author of Where the World Turns Wild

“Otherland is a hugely uplifting and fun story, with two adorably different protagonists from diverse backgrounds and fairies as you’ve never met them before; absolutely badass and hilarious.” – A. M. Dassu, author of Boy, Everywhere

“It feels retro and nostalgic, with an edge of something unsettling – like a weird dream, in the best possible way!” – Lauren Ellen Anderson, author of the Amelia Fang series

“I absolutely adored this book by. So funny & pacey & knowing and the storyline is absolutely WILD – felt like a modern-day Lewis Carroll. Highly recommend for readers age 8+.” – Nicola Skinner, author of Bloom
