Deakin Newsletter of Children’s Literature April 2007 – Book review of Who Are You, Stripy Horse by Jim Helmore and Karen Wall – Egmont + colour image of cover "Here is a delightful, clever and appealing tale of a stripy horse tucked into a corner in a second hand store…. Bright, lively pictures depict the sympathetic and engaging characters… This is a good solid story well told, one that children will want to read again and again, and it is peopled by charming characters."

Hi-Rise Newspaper March 2007 –Books review of Seeker by William Nicholson – Egmont UK "It’s a dramatic tale, made all the more suspenseful because its characters are, as real people so often are, nicely unique and original, and their behaviour cannot always be predicted. This is the first of a trilogy, but has a satisfying ending of its own."

Three books from Publishers Group Canada will do just that…. A nice children’s book from PGC is On Angel Wings…"

The Magazine (for kids) January 2007 –"Booky" section featuring Rift by Beverley Birch –Egmont "This tense mystery is made even more intense because of the setting in Africa and the different perspectives of the action offered by the police reports and letters."
