Booklist Reviews 2014 January #1

The Dashwoods think they're getting a cutie-pie baby when they adopt Emily Vole, an infant found abandoned in a ticking box in the airport, but once they have three doe-eyed cutiekins of their own, poor Emily becomes their housekeeper, living in the laundry room and sleeping on an ironing board. Luckily, the old bat next door, Miss String, takes Emily under her wing, and the girl learns about history, math, German, and . . . magic. Soon Emily and Fidget, Miss String's human-sized talking cat, embark on an adventure and undertake to solve the sudden transformation of a bevy of train passengers into fluffy pink bunnies. Discovering fairies, witches, and a secret magical shop along the way, Emily becomes an ace detective specializing in magical crimes. Roberts' stylized cartoony illustrations—mostly of cute bunnies—scatter over almost every page, adding a delightful touch to the madcap caper. Emily is a no-nonsense, brave girl detective, and young readers looking for silly magical adventures will find much to love. Want more? You're in luck: this is the first title in the Wings & Co. series. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Fall

As an infant, Emily Vole was impulsively adopted by the (deliciously nasty) Dashwoods. After the birth of their own triplets, the Dashwoods demote Emily to Cinderella status. Fortunately, when Emily is nearly nine, an elderly neighbor and her talking cat change everything. While reaching a satisfying conclusion, this first brisk, entertaining series entry leaves enough dangling threads to make readers eager for the next.

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2014 #2

Abandoned in a hatbox at Stansted Airport, infant Emily Vole is impulsively adopted by Daisy and Ronald Dashwood, deliciously nasty literary cousins to Roald Dahl's Wormwoods. After the birth of their own triplets, the Dashwoods demote Emily to Cinderella status, forcing her to work as their nanny and housekeeper and to sleep on the ironing board in the laundry room. Fortunately, when Emily is nearly nine, an elderly neighbor, Miss String, and her large talking cat, Fidget, change everything. Soon the stalwart Emily is neck-deep in magical doings -- figuring out her new role as the Keeper of the Keys (a lively sentient bunch), tracking down a mysterious shop she has inherited, and thwarting a witch who turns people into unlikely-hued rabbits. And speaking of transformed rabbits, Roberts captures perfectly their nose-twitching confusion as well as Emily's wide-eyed awe and more in a profusion of black-and-white full-page and spot-art illustrations. While reaching a satisfying conclusion, this first brisk, entertaining series entry leaves enough dangling threads to make readers eager for the next. monica edinge Copyright 2014 Horn Book Magazine.

PW Reviews 2013 November #4

Gardner and Roberts are a wickedly fun pairing in this first book in the Wings & Co. series, originally published in the U.K. in 2012. Emily Vole, now age nine, was adopted as a baby by Daisy and Ronald Dashwood; their decision was motivated more by greed than altruism, and after Daisy becomes pregnant with triplets, the Dashwoods demote Emily to servant status. Luckily, kindly neighbor Miss String and her large talking cat, Fidget, are there to educate Emily and introduce her to an exciting and dangerous world of magic. As a witch named Harpella closes in, turning the citizenry into rabbits, Emily embraces newfound abilities and gains unlikely allies. Watching Emily grow from Cinderella-style servant to determined detective-in-training is delightful, and Fidget is always good for a one-liner (of a train conductor–turned-rabbit: "And most probably he has a wife and two carrots at home"). Roberts easily keeps pace with Gardner's arch humor—with troll-like hair, beak nose, skeletal hands, and stiletto heels, Harpella indeed looks, as Emily observes, "as though she had escaped from a horror film." Ages 7–10. Author's agent: Catherine Clarke, Felicity Bryan Associates. (Feb.)
