Product Details


“It’s a fine thing that Leon Garfield’s rip-roaring and funny tales should be brought back into circulation for a new generation.” —Joan Aiken

“As an extravagant admirer for more than twenty-five years, it is hard for me to believe that Leon Garfield needs any introduction . . . He has given us books written clearly, vividly, truthfully and with great regard for language. But it is their outlaw quality that will both draw the young reader into the tale and, just possibly, impel him or her to new understandings of self, others, and the hypocrisy of the status quo.” —Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia, in The Horn Book Magazine

“I am tempted to say that Garfield’s stories are the tallest, the deepest, the wildest, the most spine-chilling, the most humorous, the most energetic, the most extravagant, the most searching, the most everything.” —John Rowe Townsend, A Sense of Story: Essays on Contemporary Writers for Children

“[The Night of the Comet is] the most felicitous collection of mishaps since the author’s equally Strange Affair of Adelaide Harris.” —School Library Journal
“Garfield nimbly choreographs all the cross-purpose encounters and unexpected entrances and exits, bringing the various on-again/off-again relationships to a generally happy conclusion at the climactic comet watch.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Garfield’s ability to plot these tangled events clearly into a rollicking farce while maintaining his lofty but superb style makes this one of the most amusing romps of the year.” —Booklist
“A delicious literary concoction bubbling along with the author’s perfect sense of dramatic timing and with his mixture of earthy humor and effervescent wit.” —The Horn Book Magazine
