9780006744429: Walking on Air

A sparkling collection of poems from Twice-Carnegie Award winning author Berlie Doherty. These poems will make you laugh and make you cry. They tell you what it is to be you. They look into your secrets. They look into your dreams! Enter a world where fish swim in the sky and shimmer like stars. Visit the valley of the village of secrets, Run away with the circus school. Meet dodos, iguanas, hobgoblins and dragons, But watch out for killer plants and the terrifying Boggart! Praise for Berlie Doherty The Company of Ghosts Doherty’s superb control of her material and her beautiful use of language have never been more perfectly combined than in this genuinely chilling ghost story … Eerily atmospheric, emotionally authentic, this is a powerful and touching coming-of-age adventure with romance at its heart’ Daily Mail Daughter of the Sea ‘Tension, emotional honesty and more than a touch of cold northern poetry as well’ Philip Pullman Deep Secret - Shortlisted for the Booktrust Teenage Fiction Award ‘Beautifully written and compulsively readable, a must for young teens.’ Independent Dear Nobody - Winner of Carnegie Medal and turned into stage production and BBC Drama ‘Quite simply outstanding’ Independent Abela 'Abela is a character who leaps out of the pages and with whom every child who reads the book will identify. Doherty’s enormously impressive achievement is to make adult subjects … understandable for young readers without once talking down to them. She transports us to both Sheffield and Africa… It is an involving, moving and above all, relevant novel that ought to be in every school library in the land and put into the hands of as many children as possible.’ Adele Geras, the Guardian Street Child ‘An exciting, moving story of the appalling conditions of Victorian London and the deprivation suffered by those who often, through no fault of their own lived lives of abject poverty and danger’ Books for Keeps
