From the Publisher"Hand it to your youngest and he will undoubtedly be highly entertained by the saga of Dinah and Dorinda and their misdeeds; give it to your best friend and he will be entertained by the delicate satire on every page."

"A wildly eccentric adventure of two sisters who set out on a complicated mission to rescue their father from prison in an enemy country. With a motley crew of characters, including not only the obligatory governess but also a splendid dancing master, this is a gloriously unpredictable tale of escalating bad behavior, magical transformations, slapstick humor, sophisticated satire and, throughout, a war-time preoccupation with food, involving irresistibly detailed lists."
— The Guardian
"Eric Linklater’s The Wind on the Moon (1944), winner of the Carnegie Award, is a wildly inventive fantasy that just begs to be read aloud.”
— The Horn Book
