This book was sent to me by the publisher, Bloomsbury, at no cost. It will be out in Australia in December 2016; RRP $24.99 (hardback). Recommended ages 9-12. Uh, wow. This book is utterly beautiful and wonderful. Both the prose and the object itself. The story: bullied girl one day gets rescued by...

I didn't think that A.F.Harrold could write something better than The Imaginary but he did. I didn't think a partnership between him and Emily Gravett could be equalled or bettered...but it has been. Harrold's story of an unlikely friendship between the young, female protagonist, Frank and the cl...

Quietly beautiful. A fairytale whispered in the concrete yards of terraced houses, this book grows and grows as AF Harrold leads us through a story about friendship. Levi Pinfold's illustrations capture the fantasy in our reality too, making this an extraordinary and unique experience.

This book is beautiful and terrifying; the perfect read for kids who like things a little creepy and different. Things I loved: talking cat, friendship, overcoming bullying, gorgeous illustrations.

The illustrations really made the book that much more magical - they ar...

I didn’t know what to think about this novel, the more that I read it. The story seemed typical until I started to know Nick and his situation. Nick was like an outcast for he was different but he didn’t seem to let that bother him much as he kept to himself. Nick didn’t have to go in and save Fr...

A F Harrold weaves a beautiful tale. There is mystery, friendship and love. The Song From Somewhere Else portrays bullying in a way that I think would bring a lot of understanding to readers. If you’ve been (or are being) bullied that Frank will be someone who you sympathise with, I saw so much of...
