Absolutely extraordinary. Every time I read a Kate DiCamillo book I'm blown away! Little Beatryce stole my heart […] It lifted me out of lockdown and reignited a childlike wonder in the power of stories (and love) to change the world. It's a beauty of a book.
*Abi Elphinstone*

Everything she writes glitters with ideas […] The Beatryce Prophecy, (is) a highly original tale […] In the course of the story, written in a distinctive, compulsive style that sucks you in like a literary vacuum cleaner, DiCamillo, based in Minneapolis, raises big questions about the education of girls, the sort of world we want to inhabit, how we should live in it and what sort of qualities one should have to lead it. […] DiCamillo has an inbuilt lightness of touch and a way with plot as Beatryce endeavours to return a sword to the king, free her mother from his tower and teach Jack how to read.
*The Times*

I fervently hope it reaches as wide a young audience as it deserves, to live as long inside them.
*The Big Issue*

The ingenuity of Kate DiCamillo’s narrative is its ability to tell an engrossing tale while surreptitiously alluding to a multitude of philosophies. The prophecy above is one such multilayered highly nuanced example… With its inspired pacing, inviting, often audacious prose, and masterful illustrations, The Beatryce Prophecy is at once a thrilling, gripping and jolly read that chimes with the purpose, power and value of storytelling. And a whole heap more but I urge you to make that journey of discovery for yourself.
*Dimity Powell*

A wonderful uplifting tale with heart-filled heroes… highly recommended. Magic for the soul.
*Funday Telegraph*
