The Outlaw Varjak Paw Reviews

Original and amazingly engrossing . . . it is much enhanced by its high-quality production and the beautiful illustrations by Dave McKean * Daily Telegraph *
To today's overprotected children, Varjak Paw is the perfect emblem of the joys and dangers of freedom. Beautifully illustrated by Dave McKeen and written in spine-tingling prose, the novels have a suspenseful edginess that children instantly respond to * The Times *
A wonderfully original creation: a fearless feline with a gift for whizzy martial arts . . . grippingly vivid . . . Dave McKean's scratchy, lean drawings perfectly capture Said's dark narrative * Evening Standard *
It's refreshing to enter a world of cats. And not just any old cats, but the rich collection of heroes and villains in the world of Varjak Paw . . . The Outlaw Varjak Paw is another swift, compelling tale. And Varjak is an appealing and believable hero * The New York Times *
The bleakness of the story is magnified by Dave McKean's brilliant illustrations. The combination of his blood-spattered paintings and Said's staccato descriptions lends the fight scenes an almost balletic quality . . . The world inhabited by these emaciated cats becomes engrossing, while the emotional ambiguities offer plenty for adults to think about * Time Out *
