David Almond, Jackdaw Summer

David Almond

Jackdaw SummerSuitable for 13-14+

Liam and Max have played on the wild Northumbrian fells for years but this particular summer, guided by a jackdaw, they stumble across a baby abandoned in an old farm building. It is the summer they leave childhood behind for the baby changes their lives in unimaginable ways. Merging the real and the imaginary, making the ordinary extraordinary, Almond has spun another spellbinding story full of local flavour and universal truths about childhood and savagery, cruelty, goodness and growing up with every word earning its space on the page. Another winner.

David Almond, The Savage

David Almond and Dave McKean

The Savage

Blue finds comfort after the death of his father in writing a far-fetched tale about a wild child who lives deep in the woods near his home, feasting on berries and anyone unlucky enough to catch sight of him. Writing people he knows into his tale proves to be Blue's undoing, for suddenly fact and fiction become confused and the savage pays a visit to the local bully. McKean's wild and raw illustrations bring Blue's grief and turmoil alive for the reader. Matched with Almond's magical and masterly storytelling, this is a sophisticated picture book about sadness and hope which is simply unmissable.
