Based on David Almond’s award-winning classic, which beat Harry Potter to win the coveted Whitbread Children’s Book Award, this story has been described as “Humorous, heart-stopping and haunting”.

10 year old Michael discovers a mysterious, fly-eating, old man hidden amongst the junk in the garage; this is Skellig. Michael resolves to help the decrepit creature by providing Chinese food and medicine that restores Skellig to a prominence never thought possible.

But what is this creature? And what are those strange bumps beneath his shoulder blades? 

This is a creepy fantasy, full of mystery that promises to entrance and move you as much as it will amuse!

“a darkly glittering couple of hours that makes you see the extraordinary in the everyday and the turbulent intensity of childhood"
