No bird in a cage ever speaks What is there to say The sky is everywhere churning above its head blue and endless calling out to it But the caged bird can t answer anything except I cannot I think I read this book all wrongI think I was reading too much into it or as the case probably is not into it enoughI ll start with the things I didn t like because I m the kind of girl who likes to get the bad news first so it s out of the way and I can be consoled and wrap myself in the fuzzy warmth of the good news Firstly I was expecting this to be a definiteDon t get me wrong It is about the war and it was really interesting the read about the persecution of Romani gypsies at the hands of the Nazis in Eastern Europe I can t think of any other books that I ve read and certainly not young adult ones that focus on this subject But it was about the war in extremely abstract terms Soldiers tanks bombs and weapons are all mentioned but almost in passing and in conversation between the animals Yes The talking animals So I m not sure whether that was just me and my expectations but yeah so that was my main problem I wonder how I would have felt about reading this if I hadn t read so many books about WW2 in successionOh well we ll never know It was also extremely short and I would have loved to have spent time on Andrej and Tomas journey as opposed to the head scratching conversations with the animalsAnyway now to the good partsWow Ms Hartnett can write Holy guacamole There was a point as my hand started to get cramp whether I seriously considered just forgetting writing down my favourite passages and just photocopying it to stick in my notebook It read like a fairy tale like a true fairy tale Dark frightening thought provoking and with wisps of magic snaking through the proseThis is how writing should be all the time THERE IS NO EXCUSE AUTHORSHere are a few of my favourite parts Taking his vast and circular lantern the moon Night brushed aside a constellation of stars and came closer curious to discover why no bell klong Moonlight lay on Andrej like a fairy s suit of armour We are wildcat people Andrej You will never have a doormat but the earth and sky belong to you I also loved the relationship between Andrej and Tomas I love stories that focus on siblings I have two and they re both a huge part of my life rather than a romantic element because I always think that romance is easy or at least it s easier to writeRelationships between siblings are much complex there s always love but there isn t always like Ms Hartnett created such a pure and wonderful relationship between these boys and let s not forget WilmaAnd the illustrations YesThey were so gorgeous My favourite was the one where the boys first see the wolf standing in his enclosure in the moonlight They were extremely striking simple but effective So even though this book was a little disappointing I still liked it and I have on good authority From the lovely Nomes at Inkcrush that her other books are fantastic and I hope to get around to reading them soon

This has some beautiful passages The writing is evocative beautiful and powerful However I found myself reading something that seems unbearably dark and painful in so many ways Each tragic tale leads to the next The most similar thing I can think of is the story of the little match girlI don t know that this is much of a children s book I can t think of a young reader I d give it to Adult readers may appreciate this and be able to deal with the tragic commentary on the war as well as the rather vague ending
