A visionary writer brings you his Carnegie Medal winner Skellig and its prequel – two books which truly reach places others don’t. Nothing rivals David Almond’s breathtaking gift for finding mystery and wonder in the everyday world. Here, in two of his iconic works, he explores some of the mysteries of life with the lightest and most haunting of touches. David’s baby sister is seriously ill when he discovers a magical creature in his parents’ crumbling garage. Part owl, part angel. Maybe good – or maybe evil. Can Skellig help to bring David’s dying sister back to life? And in the recent novel My Name is Mina, we are drawn into the world of David’s best friend Mina before the pair have met. Talking about the loss of her father and her struggles to fit in, Mina explores the boundaries of her identity in an enchanting and solitary night-time world.
“David Almond is a fine writer, one of the very finest we have. He is simply incapable of writing a bad sentence.” Michael Morpurgo
“There really is nobody quite like Almond writing in children’s or adults’ fiction today.” The Times
“A writer of subtle, page-turning and daring exactness.” TES
