Reviews

Praise for Arthur Pepper from international publishers:

USA
Arthur Pepper is a character for the ages.

Brazil
Incredibly touching and with a certain nostalgic feel.

Germany
I fell in love with Arthur Pepper on page one. The text reminded me a bit of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry. And yet the story is utterly unique – as a reader you want to climb into the book.

Italy
This book brings happiness!
