Mort the Meek and the Ravens' Revenge is simply hilarious. Rachel Delahaye cuts straight to the point with her writing to deliver a quippy and amazingly bizarre narrative that had me laughing out loud. I loved Mort and his pacifist outlook on life. I loved Brutalia and the ridiculousness of the island and the situation Mort finds himself in. I will definitely be purchasing this - I think many of my students will love it!

Someone get me a ticket to the inside of Rachel Delahaye's brain! 'Wikedly funny' they said. And they were right! Delahaye's writing is clever and hilarious and bursting with creativity! That's clear from page 1. I only meant to dip in one day but I got carried away! And here's a confession for you: I'd never normally pick up a grisly/gory book (though PLENTY of readers love that and I have to say this book is never tooooo much!), but when I saw the author and that phenomenal cover, I was 100% sold on this one and I'm so glad I dived in. Mort is such a wonderful character - a pacifist of all things in an astonishingly brutal world - and I think he's going to be very well loved. I'm going to need to see more of him! (And goes without saying that George Ermos's artwork is PERFECT!)
