Skellig

by David Almond
£5.99   paperback  Hodder Children's Books (2009)

Skellig by David Almond Michael was looking forward to moving house. It was all going to be wonderful. But now his baby sister's ill, his parents are frantic and Doctor Death has come to call. Michael feels helpless.
 
Then he steps into the crumbling garage...
 
What is this thing beneath the spider's webs and dead flies? A human being, or a strange kind of beast never seen before? The only person Michael can confide in is Mina.
Together, they carry the creature out into the light, and Michael's world changes forever...
 
Winner of the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year and the Carnegie Medal.

"David Almond's lyrical tale of the angel Skellig is written with delicacy and restraint, and tells a story of love and faith with exquisite, heart-fluttering tenderness. It is an extraordinarily profound book, no matter how old the reader."
(Chair of the Whitbread Judging Panel)
