Reviews for 18 Mulberry Road
Emma Lidiard in The Westmoreland Gazette. 24 November 2011.
Filled with a series of imaginative tales all rolled into one, this marathon bedtime story will not fail to capture the interest of children.
Centred on the epic adventure of two brother sparrows who are attempting to reach their great uncle, this story is bursting with characters and places which will put a smile on everyone's face, no matter how old.
Mr English, who lives in Morecambe, has a talent for creating a comforting mood which, despite how wrong things are going, for the main parts still resonates a tranquil tone.
Peppered throughout this adventure are detailed illustrations by local artist Pauline Henderson which helps bring the story alive.
"18 Mulberry Road" is a wonderfully delightful book which, as an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed. The illustrations add significantly to the appeal. I can't see how any child wouldn't enjoy what it has to offer.

I have read "18 Mulberry Road". I thought it was so fantastic, I am reading it for a second time to get the most enjoyment out of it. It is such a good book, it is worth reading twice!

I have read "18 Mulberry Road"and I think it is amazing. My favourite part was when Furtive saved Patience from the strange cat. My favourite character was Furtive himself. I found the book very interesting and it was great to read. I look forward to reading the next book. I have asked for some of your books for Christmas.

"18 Mulberry Road" is a really nice book about birds, and I think it would appeal to younger children. I understood everything, and there were a few funny bits in, though there was a few tense moments! liked Great-Uncle Ebeneezer and Benjamin: I loved the mysteries about them.
I absolutely liked it, and would give it 4.5/5.0 stars!
