'In his writing, he puts on no airs; his literary background (English degree from Wadham, Oxford) has not held him up - or back. Sometimes his writing is so simple, you wonder at it: how did he resist the temptation to dress it up? He knows - in his work at least - when to stop.' --Kate Kellaway, Observer

'The lovely thing about Rosen's writing is that it is rooted in the reality of his own post-war childhood - you can smell the matzo bray his father makes as a treat when his mother is out, hear the wheels squeak on his go-kart, sense the thrill of him and his 10-year-old friend Mart on holiday climbing the Sugar Loaf mountain and crossing from Wales into England with their trousers down.' --Guardian

'Throughout his career, Rosen has inspired children and adults to fall in love with reading.' --Independent
