Sometimes a book and a writer come along and you get stopped in your tracks. Bang! Each page draws you in, holds you, refuses to let go. It happened to me once before with Ursula Le Guin's Earthsea quartet. Now it has happened again with Sean Wright's Jesse Jameson and the Golden Glow. I don't want to put in too many spoilers, because this book is full of great moments you'd best read yourself. It's brilliant. Why? Jesse Jameson is so real - in fact even though most of the characters are fairy folk, you get a clear sense of them. I got a vivid picture of their troubled Kingdoms, the struggles of good and evil, of Jesse's battle with her own growing magic, soothsaying, and transformational power. This really is a wonderful book. And the series (Jesse jameson Alpha to Omega)looks set to be a long running classic of the twenty first century.

This novel by Sean Wright is a fabulous first novel by a British author and illustrator. Jesse Jameson is a girl-hero who can transform into any creature she can think of, which proves to be a magical talent useful for rescuing her kidnapped mum from the evil witch-sisters, Dendrith and Gwendrith. With laughs, action, magic, and weird charaters and settings, this book has the feeling of a classic. Remember CS Lewis's 'Narnia', or Rowling's 'Hogwarts,' and yes, not on a scale so grand, but still highly original: Tolkein's fantastic fantasy landscapes? The Jesse Jameson Alpha to Omega Series is equally important in children's literature. This is a remarkable book. Check it out.

This book is brilliant. It's pacy, exciting and full of adventures that include some wierd and wonderful characters - Iggywig, Brimbalin, Perigold, the Dragon Hunter, Dendrith and Gwendrith the evil witch-sisters, and of course the heroine - Jesse Jameson. Read it - it's fantastic and being compared to Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Philip Pullman's Dark Materials Triology. Watch out for Book Two - Jesse Jameson and the Bogie Beast -at Halloween!
