Title: The Savage

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.
