'Handsomely illustrated by Nick Maland, it has a humour and a humanity of it's own, and adds to, rather than detracts from, the original.'
'Wittily illustrated by Nick Maland, packed with humour and just enough heartache to keep readers involved, this charming novel is a real treat'
'Wishing for Tomorrow is a warm, witty read that offers more realistic advice on climbing out of poverty than inheriting a diamond mine'
Funny, clever and vividly characterised - I loved it.
Charming, stylish, often funny, and frequently very moving.
Warm and wise.
A pitch-perfect reconstruction of the attic world of Miss Minchin's Seminary.
A superb job of breathing new life into familiar characters. ****
Clever, sweet, lively and well-written.
Superbly realised... very true to the original... a cleverly entertaining book.
