Praise For Untitled

“A great read and a touching and funny exploration of the true meaning of family.”
— S. J. Watson, author of Before I Go To Sleep

“A great, tender-hearted story about stories. It’s a book about what books can give us, and how they can add to our adventure – or even take us on one. A lovely read.”
— Matt Haig, author of The Humans

“An agreeably old-fashioned story with likable characters and just enough suspense to keep the pages turning. And who can resist a novel about a mobile library?”

"Brilliant. Every page is filled with beautifully crafted sentences in a story replete with pathos and humor."

"Powerful, eccentric . . . Whitehouse’s writing is energetic and pacey, spiked with startling moments of tenderness and superbly controlled. Don’t wait for the inevitable film."

"Master storytelling, offering a love-letter to old-fashioned, happy-ever-after children’s novels . . . Remarkable . . . Whitehouse’s tragicomic book is absorbing to its end."

"A beautifully written ode to childhood innocence."

"The quirkiest plot we’ve seen for a while . . . making for a magical literary tour that evokes how the books we read as children inspire us. Heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure."

"Book lovers will be charmed by Mobile Library . . . It’s a funny coming-of-age tale."

"Whitehouse cleverly illustrates the way in which lives and books intertwine."



"A modern day fairytale . . . a plot that bounds along, dramatic event after dramatic event . . . hints of magic . . . It’s also fun . . . The message becomes clear: stories can save us, unite us, show us other ways of being, offer solace . . . as messages go, it’s a sound one, an example of the open-hearted warmth at the core of this book."



"Full of heart and hope and absurd bravery, as three lost souls and Bert the dog run away from home in a stolen mobile library. They then set about creating their own kind of family and rewriting the stories of their lives . . . the writer’s charismatic, sparky tale of salvation and the stories within stories brilliantly shows how adventure can overtake and transform the most unlikely of people."



"An action packed tale of expanding horizons . . . engagingly offbeat powers of observation . . . the van becomes as much of a vehicle of fantasy as the Little Prince’s biplane or James’s giant peach – both a sanctuary from the outside world and a store of limitless possibilities . . . quietly profound . . . genuinely compelling."
