About this title


<p>Winner of both the Guardian Award and the Carnegie Medal, this is an all-time classic, combining mystery, adventure, history and a complex set of human relationships. Featuring a new introduction by Philip Pullman.</p><p>It all begins with the scratching in the ceiling. From the moment Alison discovers the dinner service in the attic, with its curious pattern of floral owls, a chain of events is set in progress that is to effect everybody&#x2019;s lives.</p><p>Relentlessly, Alison, her step-brother Roger and Welsh boy Gwyn are drawn into the replay of a tragic Welsh legend &#x2013; a modern drama played out against a background of ancient jealousies. As the tension mounts, it becomes apparent that only by accepting and facing the situation can it be resolved.</p>


<p>&#x201c;...A rare imaginative feat and the taste that it leaves is haunting.&#x201d; The Observer</p><p>&quot;One of the first and best [novels] for and about teenagers; it remains one of the most original and gripping ghost stories... timeless.&quot; Amanda Craig, The Times</p><p>&#x201c;Alan Garner&#x2019;s The Owl Service is not meant only for children or anyone else; it&#x2019;s a novel; and not many better novels will be published this year...The power grows, throbs nearer, builds to unbearable tension, and comes to wild release in the last few pages.&#x201d; The Guardian</p><p>&quot;A fascinating book... The Owl Service is a fabulous, multi-layered book of mystery and suspense.&quot; The Book Bag</p><p>&#x201c;This book is a superb piece of architecture in which every detail plays its proper part.&#x201d; Growing Point</p>
