'Until last year we would have called ourselves an ordinary English family. I mean, you may think that Figgis was pretty odd - the way he could get so upset about an injured squirrel or an Ethiopian mother and child or be so knowledgeable about the South Seas where he'd never been. But everything was fine...'

And then things became more serious. It was as if Figgis had become another boy, a boy in the Gulf. As war rages in the Middle East, Tom finds himself with a battle on his hands too - to save his brother!

    " It sort of started out slow, but it was pretty good overall. "

    " A story on Gulf war. I thought the stories on modern war are rare in the children's literature. I will recommend my children to read this. Although it was sad story, I will have to teach children about the wars. This book will help it. "

    " Classic Westall--a story that accepts the possibility of paranormal phenomenon, about a boy who is perhaps too empathic, set during the first Gulf war. An easy read, that does raise some issues worth thinking about, but nothing special. "

    " Totally gripped me too. Great way to get children to learn abit about the Gulf war, and what I really liked about it was the way Westall creats sympathy for the boy in Iraq without actually taking the reader directly to the battleground. Truely captivating. "
