Publisher Review

Another brilliantly entertaining & thought provoking book from the master storyteller Frank Cottrell-Boyce. Once again I am in total awe. * David Walliams * Funny, surprising, original, written in texts and letters, with friendly black-and-white illustrations, this is a joyous book about the things that are truly valuable. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * Proper, sparkly, witty, enticing storytelling . . . It's perfect. -- Hilary McKay A comic novel so light on its feet, it is positively levitating * The Times * It's a relief to find Frank Cottrell-Boyce cheering us on with his irrepressible boy narrator in Noah's Gold [...] An adventure whose wit and energy recalls E Nesbit's immortal Oswald Bastable, this is an absolute tonic about using your head instead of relying on technology, or adults -- Amanda Craig * New Statesman * A writer of comic genius - he has something of Roald Dahl's magic, but more heart * Sunday Telegraph * Joyous writing. Wonderful characters. Authentic humour. Heart & soul. So Much Fun. And, oh, the dialogue! Just love it! Pure class -- Jenny Pearson, author of The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates Frank Cottrell-Boyce's stories make you laugh and cry. He's the real deal for children of eight and over. -- Amanda Craig * Guardian * With a nod to classics like Lord Of The Flies and Treasure Island this is a rip-roaring tale of buried treasure. * Independent * A laugh-out-loud writer * Guardian * There's always a buzz of excitement in the air when a new Frank Cottrell-Boyce book hits the shelves and the award-winning author certainly strikes gold with this rip-roaring adventure. * Lancashire Evening Post * Frank Cottrell-Boyce has created a brilliantly sympathetic and funny character in Noah, and his insecurity about being the smallest, the youngest, and the person seemingly responsible for everything going wrong makes him a wonderfully relatable hero. * BookTrust * This book absolutely sizzles and sparks with Frank's most marvellous sense of humour. It's cheeky, funny, heart-warming and so full of love. * Love My Read * a funny and life-affirming tale about co-operation and resourcefulness, with a Blytonesque hidden-loot subplot thrown in. * Financial Times * A gently funny story for eight-plus, with a warm, classic feel. * Guardian * Noah's Gold is fantastically fun, packed with action and overflows with heart as the group get closer and friendships bloom. It would make a brilliant class novel (and a fab film too!) I thoroughly recommend this clever, comic caper. * ReadingZone * This wacky, comical, entertaining tale reels its way through to the final rescue involving foil blankets and hot chocolate. A brilliant read for the eights-plus. * Newbury Weekly News * A new book from this multi-award-winning author is always something to celebrate! Full of his trademark wit and warmth, endearing characters, and a cracking plot, this is indeed a joyous read. [...] A beautifully observed gem. * The School Librarian *
