BEST YA MYSTERY
— 2015 Gelett Burgess Children’s Book Awards —

SILVER MEDALIST (Pre-Teen Fiction)
— 2015 Moonbeam Children’s Awards —

‘Narnia character types and a Stephen King plot make The Cat’s Maw an absolutely intriguing novel (with) sophisticated, scary, supernatural thrills.’
— VOYA Magazine 2015 TOP SHELF Honoree —

‘Exciting, dark and packed full of mystery.
A Red Ribbon winner and highly recommended.’
—The 2015 Wishing Shelf Book Awards —

‘A well-written and character-filled journey…reminiscent of Diana Wynne Jones. This book will delight any young reader’
— The BookLife Prize for Fiction —

'Burgess leaves readers clawing for the sequel. Kids will enjoy it; adults will love it.'
— KIRKUS Reviews —

'If you are the sort of person who enjoys being the first to know about something important, it's high time you read this. Because this is important. For brave young readers as well as their parents.'
—THE GUARDIAN (Children’s) —

'FIVE STARS - haunting fantasy not for the faint of heart.'
— MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW —

‘Few authors can match this one when it comes to grounded ‘surreality’. It’s a heady mixture handled with deft grace. The prose is lyrical and deceptively complex.
Lo and behold, (Burgess) has returned...and it is brilliant.'
— LIVING MYTH MAGAZINE —

'Young readers (will) fall in love from the first page.'
—BOOKWORMS FOR KIDS —

‘A wonderful mix of surrealism, fantasy, and reality…evocative and gut-wrenching. There is a dreamlike state that surrounds the novel — a harrowing adventure (that) is masterfully done.’
—SFBook Reviews —

‘The Cat’s Maw will take you on an adventure. The story is beautifully written…entertaining, and full of imagination and vivid detail.'
—SCARLET’S WEB —

'Cinematic...lyrical...and quite often extraordinary.'
— SEAMUS CASHMAN —

'TOP 100 Children's Books to Read in a Lifetime'
