9780340944950: Skellig

When a move to a new house coincides with his baby sister's illness, Michael's world seems suddenly lonely and uncertain.

Then, one Sunday afternoon, he stumbles into the old, ramshackle garage of his new home, and finds something magical. A strange creature - part owl, part angel, a being who needs Michael's help if he is to survive. With his new friend Mina, Michael nourishes Skellig back to health, while his baby sister languishes in the hospital.

But Skellig is far more than he at first appears, and as he helps Michael breathe life into his tiny sister, Michael's world changes for ever . . .

Skellig won the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Children's Book Award and is now a major Sky1 feature film, starring Tim Roth and John Simm. David Almond is also winner of the 2010 Hans Christian Andersen award.

This newly jacketed edition celebrates 15 years of this multi-award-winning novel and is available from 5th September 2013.

Recensione:

Lyrical, innovative and unforgettably moving. ( Sunday Express (Cressida Cowell))

Lyrical, innovative and moving...unforgettably moving (Cressida Cowell Sunday Express)

The book I wish I'd written is Skellig by David Almond. Almond's book has a great sense of the mysterious; we are left with a sense of wonder. I wish that I had written it! (Joseph Delaney Books For Keeps)

Brings Magical Realism to working-class Northeast England ( i (The Independent))

A story full of heart and magic and big confusing emotions, elegantly told by a master craftsman. A perfect piece of art (Lucy Christopher Big Issue (london))

Touched with a visionary intensity, this strange, hugely readable and life-affirming tale exercises every muscle of the imagination ( The Guardian)

Humorous, heart-stopping and haunting...an emotional roller-coaster of a read with a cliff-hanger of a conclusion. Inspired and inspiring. ( Newcastle Journal)

A visionary story...a lyrical, magical kind of book which can be read on many different levels ( The Daily Mail)

Voted Carnegie Medal's Number one Top Book of the past 70 years ( The Times)

I can't eat a chinese takeaway without thinking about this strange and beautiful book about an angel who seems to have lost his way. (Gill Harvey The Big Issue)
