One of the real masters of children's literature.
Peter Dickinson is a national treasure.
Unfailingly erudite and inventive, he possesses an intriguing and unpredictable imagination.
He is the true original, a superb writer who revitalises the traditions of the mystery genre . . . incapable of writing a trite or inelegant sentence . . . a master.
The Tolkien of the crime novel.
He sets new standards in the mystery field that will be hard to live up to.
He has an eye and a mind and a voice like no other.

A stylist of subtle brilliance

I think Peter Dickinson is hands down the best stylist as a writer and the most interesting storyteller in my genre.
