'It is impossible to read this story without bursts of laughter - and it carries a bonus: you put it down at the end feeling that you have made the acquaintance of one of the world's most delightful peoples.
On Top of the World is written with an affectionate air that is instantly appealing, and with a sense of comedy that is bang on. It has all the same qualities that made Lesley Rowland's first book Why Can't the English? such a resounding success.'
