By David Almond
Man, bird or angel? Who, or what, is Skellig?
Michael was looking forward to moving house. It was all going to be wonderful. But now his baby sister’s ill, his parents are frantic, and Doctor Death has come to call. Then he steps into the crumbling garage. What is this thing beneath the spider webs and dead flies? A human being, or a strange kind of beast never seen before? Enlisting the help of his new friend Mina, together they carry the creature into the light and their world changes forever.
