You can feel the chill from the ghosts that haunt its pages. An essential read from an original voice in children's books. ( The Daily Telegraph)

David Almond is a writer of subtle, page-turning and daring exactness, and he applies the same potent poetic and emphatic skills in his equally moving new novel. ( Times Educational Supplement)

Descripción Hachette Children s Group, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 196 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Kit has just moved to Stoneygate with his family, to live with his ageing grandfather who is gradually succumbing to Alzheimer s Disease. Stoneygate is an insular place, scarred by its mining history - by the danger and death it has brought them. Where the coal mine used to be there is now a wilderness. Here Kit meets Askew, a surly and threatening figure who masterminds the game called Death, a frightening ritual of hypnotism; and Kit makes friends with Allie, the clever school troublemaker. As Kit struggles to adjust to his new life and the gradual failing of his beloved grandfather, these two friendships pull him towards a terrifying resolution. Haunted by ghosts of the past, Kit must confront death and - ultimately - life. A stunning novel from the author of the modern children s classic Skellig - winner of the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Children s Book Award. David Almond is also winner of the 2010 Hans Christian Andersen award. Nº de ref. de la librería AA69780340944967
