A dark, powerful and moving short story from the internationally acclaimed author of Skellig.

Joe Quinn tells everyone about the poltergeist in his house, but no one believes him. No one that is, except for Davey. He’s felt the inexplicable presence in the rooms, he’s seen random objects fly through the air. And there’s something else ... a memory of his beloved sister, and a feeling deep down that somehow it might be possible for ghosts to exist.

Review:

"Strangeness also saturates David Almond's graphic-novel collaboration with Dave McKean Blurring the boundaries between text and image, child and adult, life and afterlife, Almond and McKean create a sense of the meeting point between the human and sublime." * The Guardian * "In the arresting style of their earlier collaborations, McLean's visuals give life to the dark, otherworldly soul of Almond's short story." * The Bookseller, Children's March Previews * "Each page is a work of art...Combining the demotic and the lyrical, Almond continues to mine the language and circumstances of his own youth, and to reveal the weighty emotional and spiritual moments of young lives." * Sunday Times, Children's Book of the Week * "DAVID ALMOND'S brilliant books explore powerful emotions of grief and hope, the balance between the ordinary and extraordinary, reality and the supernatural. In this stunning graphic story, created with longtime collaborator Dave McKean, he draws on the death of his own baby sister, Barbara, when Almond was just seven... Set against the backdrop of Almond's beloved Tyneside terraced streets, with troubled priests, footballing youths and broken families, the thought-provoking tale is brought vividly to life by McKean's powerful illustrations." * Sally Morris, The Daily Mail * "...a wonderfully immersive tale, told with David Almond's trademark melancholy grit and wit." * Financial Times * "This dark and moving book is a must-read for young teens in need of a powerful, coming-of-age tale. As you'd expect, it's told and drawn with mesmering, jaw-drops-to-the-floor style." * BookTrust *
