Product description

Review

"Its strength as a novel is in its subtlety. . . . Skellig is a fine book." — The New York Times Book Review

"British novelist Almond makes a triumphant debut in the field of children’s literature with prose that is at once eerie, magical, and poignant." — Publishers Weekly, Starred


From the Paperback edition. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

David Almond grew up in a large family in northeastern England and says, “The place and the people have given me many of my stories.” He worked as a postman, a brush salesman, an editor, and a teacher but began to write seriously after he finished college. His first novel for children, Skellig, was a Michael L. Printz Honor Book and an ALA-ALSC Notable Children’s Book and appeared on many best book of the year lists. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stoke Reads On 101: Book 2
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 July 2017
I read 'Skellig' as part of a reading challenge with secondary school students.
As a reader: The everyday woven with moments of soaring hope, searing pain and extraordinary beauty. Full of Almond's ideas, but with space for me to think for myself. Torn between wanting to find out what would happen and not wanting it to end. I loved Mina - and look forward to meeting her again - but was absorbed and moved by the whole story. In Skellig, I found a perfect balance.
As a librarian: Lots of questions from readers about this book - about Mina's home learning, Michael's friendship with her and what kind of creature Skellig is, to name a few. One student takes a chance with it, and lots of others follow. A great conversation starter and introduction to the beauty of language, as well as a fascinating read.
