The sound of unseen owls. A Welsh legend repeating… If you liked Skellig, you’ll love this Carnegie winner: a tale of myth, magic and wonder. It all starts with the scratching in the ceiling. Mice, rats, bats – or maybe birds? When Alison climbs up to look, she finds the old dinner service, with its curious pattern of floral owls. As a hot, brooding summer full of oppressive heat unfolds, Alison, Roger and Welsh boy Gwyn are drawn into the dark magic of a tragic Welsh legend. It’s a tale of love, jealousy and revenge: a drama that must be played out over and over, unless the children can find a way to break an ancient curse…
