Thank you for visiting us in Book Week. Sebastian Darke is the best book I’ve ever read. I can’t wait till the next of the sequence comes to the shops.

Site of the month for May is for Philip Caveney's hilarious Sebastian Darke: Prince of Fools at www.sebastiandarke.co.uk
I am writing to congratulate you on your new book. I absolutely loved it. I read on the inside cover that Prince Of Fools is your first book for children and would like to implore you to write more.
Sam Lowe, Mottram.
I am writing to tell you how much I love your book. It’s absolutely brilliant! P.S. Max sounds like my sister!
Luke Van Den Barselaar, Somerset.
I liked Max the buffalope because he’s always moaning and asking questions.
