Praise for Iron Robin

A beautiful story ... Tremain's debut is first class ... Iron Robin combines everyday childhood themes with a pinch of fantasy, all brilliantly visualised by Jones's expressive artwork.

Observer

Iron Robin, about the friendship between a boy called Oliver and a rusty metal bird, felt soaked in folklore and magic. Magnificent layered drawings by Richard Jones added to its richness and depth.
