Praise for A Waltz for Matilda: 'Jackie French has a passion for history, and an enviable ability to weave the fascinating minutiae of everyday life into a good story.' Magpies Magazine Praise for the Girl from Snowy River: '... when I was 11 or 12, I would have read and reread it until it fell to bits. It has everything: horses, poems, ghosts, heroism, war, the bush and a love story.' Saturday Age 'this is a genuine gem that is impossible to put down and must be swallowed whole in one sitting.' Newcastle Herald Ages: 11+
