“They offer young readers the chance to think about what kind of world they would create for themselves if they could forge everything again… Breaking and making is at the heart of a great many stories; the devastation of the old highlights the importance of the new when it is rediscovered or reinvented… It’s not a new fictional phenomenon.” – Julia Eccleshare
