This book is the epitome of that elusive British storytelling voice - the one that makes realistic fiction feel so ethereal and mysterious that it reads like fantasy. And the plot itself certainly furthers that feeling: a mother-hunting expedition, children who live in trees, women playing the cello on Parisian rooftops, and a pigeon-eating boy on the run from an orphanage. Rooftoppers will bewitch you. ~ Reviewed by Nadja Tiktinsky
