SUNW – Elizabeth MacCallum, The National Post

“Sunwing will keep young readers glued to the page. Right and wrong, breathtaking struggles, good and bad, lovable little creatures and dastardly big bullies were all there. The prose and the multi-layered plot flow with natural ease. Oppel is master of his words. He writes nuanced economic prose that is wholly effective. He has been evoking tunnels and underground passages and filthy polluted water for years, so Sunwing’s burrowing rats in decaying Aztec ruins and crawling bats in muck-ridden dripping sewers are handled with precisely the right words to induce fear. Oppel is a beautiful writer who carries us through his wide world with eclectic energy, wisdom and whimsy.”
