    1. Three reviews from our CALEB reviewers:(1) When I finished reading The Word War I felt a real sense of ambiguity about the story.

The books is beautifully presented and the illustrations by Amy Lees have a subtle naivety to them, simplistic at first but growing to encompass the emotional focus of the story. One [...]
