Heartsong is a beautifully crafted book, which is a delight to read and an absolute must to give as a gift. It's the sort of book to leave on your bedside table and dip into last thing at night and has a little something for everyone who enjoys well-written gems of poetry and prose.
It's not only Toby and Daisy who pass into a magical other world, the reader does too. Although she's aimed the book at older children, Iona Jenkins has created such vivid images - and such horrible villains - that adults should also find it enthralling. A wonderful read.
