"This immaculately presented book is hugely relevant to today's youthful enquiries. Strongly recommended for all services catering for young people, their parents and teachers."
— Reference Reviews

"...a first class reference resource that will save lots of time in seeking out information for inquisitive youngsters. It will become a first port of call for busy professionals. The front cover states that the target audience is "youth librarians and teachers." I hope that this does not deter parents and young people from also picking up this excellent publication. They will benefit just as much."
— Library Review

"...this is a really good book to have on your bookshelves, one that you can dip into for interest as well as research and one that merits regular use in both public and school libraries in the UK. I certainly learnt from it, and will be recommending it myself to staff and students."
