About the Author:

Charlotte Haptie has wanted to be a writer since she was seven, but has had a number of more sensible jobs in between. Her first literary success and only publication before Otto and the Flying Twins was the sale of an idea for a Valentine's card. She was brought up in Buckinghamshire and Merseyside, and now lives in Scotland.

Review:

A thrilling and wondrous adventure . . . reading it is like being taken for a ride on Otto's magic carpet! * The Sunday Express * Charming and highly readable . . . eccentric and individual. * TES Teacher * I love this book. Told as a whimsical adventure full of colours, magic and sparks, it really is a child's parable about serious issues of suffering. . . . The plot moves along shakily as real children's lives do. Adults quarrel, young friends tiff and reunite, and every page touches a reader's sense of wonder. . . . one's heartstrings are pulled, and you long to visit them again and again. * Inis the Children's Book Ireland Magazine * From the gorgeous map at the beginning, to the amazing talents of Otto and his friends, this is the perfect fantasy * RTE Guide * Magical yet appealingly true to life, the much awaited follow up to Otto and the Flying Twins * parents news * A fantastic read with a twisting, turning plot that ensures page-turning intrigue from beginning to end ... superb storytelling ... highly recommended, rip-roaring adventure ideal for children aged nine and over. * amazon.co.uk * Romps along ... Haptie has taken a serious theme ... which gives this quirky debut a serious and valid undercurrent. * TES * Praise for Otto and the Flying Twins: 'A sophisticated, elliptical fantasy that does not read like anything you have come across before. It will reward youngsters ... with its magic, warmth and excitement.' * The Sunday Times * This is certainly unlike anything you have come across before * School Librarian * A mixture of humour and extravagant action, this attractive fantasy is accessible to quite young readers simply as an adventure story. But it is a very thoughtful book, and underlying its invention and suspense are other layers of meaning. * BfK * A thrilling and wondrous adventure * The Sunday Express * Charming and highly readable * Times Educational Supplement *
