Storm Hound is AWESOME!!!! Everyone should read Storm Hound. Do it now, people. Cuddle a puppy while you’re doing it for the immersive 3D experience. (Ask the puppy’s owner’s permission first, especially if they look like they might be magical.) Sarah Todd Taylor, author of Max the Detective Cat
A clever blend of myth, magic and wry humour. Library Girl and Book Boy
Fast-paced and funny, this otherworldly adventure is a heartwarming tale of friendship and loyalty. Booktrust
Claire Fayers gives readers an hilarious glimpse into the lives of cats and dogs (and even sheep!) as they are given their own voice and internal monologues, and the diatribes of mighty Storm of Odin coming from a harmless puppy never stops being funny. Books for Keeps
On finishing the book, your mood will be uplifted. This cleverly written heartfelt story will make you feel better about the world that you live in. What a great start to the year with a wonderful book to read. Mr Ripley’s Enchanted Books
This book is amazing! It’s full of magic and makes you want to read more. In some places it makes you laugh out loud! All of the book is good so I don’t have a favourite part. I would recommend Storm Hound for an 11 year old child and fans of Terry Pratchett. It’s great!’ Yumi, aged 9, Reader at Seven Oaks Bookshop
