"Robert's voice is ticklish, immediate, and won my heart in a flash. He's a young boy with natural charm, gumption and an energetic, infectious curiosity about the world around him - a world rich with characters and history. Irene talks about extremely complex issues with warm humour and a deft touch, and her books will appeal to readers of all ages."
