Editorial Reviews

It is hard to imagine a novel delivering more to the young reader than Angel Square. It is funny and fast-paced...teeming with sentimentality...

— Reader's Guide to the Canadian Novel

...written with a stunning simplicity that belies the mischief, humor and poignancy of the tale. Engrossing language and unpredictable twists of plot and emotion will open a world of story and adventure.

— Kitchener-Waterloo Record

Doyle's finest book to date...

— Ottawa Citizen

Doyle has an eye for detail, and his writing style is appealing, with short crisp sentences.

— School Library Journal

...working-class grittiness, Irish blarney, Ottawa Valley tall tales and deadpan satire all rolled implausibly into one plausible, irresistible romp.

— Michele Landsberg
