"Canada has given the world a growing number of great adult novelists, from Margaret Atwood to Robertson Davies, but until recently no children's authors. Kenneth Oppel, the boyish-looking man sitting opposite me in a London café, is the first .... If you have a boy who is a reluctant reader and only into gaming, Oppel is a godsend. He writes books that will enchant any child of 8+ who loves the Indiana Jones movies, Jules Verne or Tintin."
