WINNER OF THE WATERSTONES CHILDREN'S BOOK PRIZE 2017

Forbidden to leave her island, Isabella dreams of the faraway lands her cartographer father once mapped. When her friend disappears, she volunteers to guide the search. The world beyond the walls is a monster-filled wasteland - and beneath the dry rivers and smoking mountains, a fire demon is stirring from its sleep. Soon, following her map, her heart and an ancient myth, Isabella discovers the true end of her journey: to save the island itself.

Review:

I read it, I loved it. Gripping, enjoyable and a book which is beautifully written and designed. (Malorie Blackman, author of Noughts and Crosses)

Lovely book (and beautifully presented) ... very much my cup of tea. (Frances Hardinge, author of The Lie Tree)

... loved it. One of those timeless stories that feels like a real myth. (Samantha Shannon, author of The Bone Season) This book is one of the most aesthetically pleasing books I've ever had the fortune to hold, let alone read ... it s FANTASTIC! (Carrie Hope Fletcher) A fine mix of magic and adventure with a captivating heroine enthralling and engrossing by turns. (Celia Rees, author of Witch Child)

The Girl of Ink & Stars was a mesmerising, enchanting debut, full of adventure and fire and heart. It reads like a fairytale that's 1000 years old ... an absolute jewel of a book, as vivid and real and the maps inside it. It s a classic in the making and I know I ll be re-reading it again and again. (Melinda Salisbury, author of The Sin Eater s Daughter)

Kiran Millwood Hargrave creates a spellbinding world of magic, myth and adventure. The story holds you like a labyrinth and won't let you go. (Emma Carroll, author of Frost Hollow Hall)

A spellbinding adventure from a wonderful new voice in children s fiction. Beautiful storytelling. (Abi Elphinstone, author of The Dreamsnatcher)

[I was] enthralled, entranced and devastated all at once. So beautiful and magical (Piers Torday, author of The Last Wild)

I loved this book and its beautiful poetic writing. (Peter Bunzl, author of Cogheart)

Absolutely stunning. Magical, vivid, lyrical and touching. (Catherine Doyle, author of The Storm Keeper's Island)

Charming and adventurous ... It s a classic adventure with twists and turns and a bold, fearless heroine. And if you like your books as beautiful as the writing, you're in for a treat. (Harriet Reuter Hapgood, author of The Square Root of Summer)

Millwood Hargrave is a name we will be hearing more from; her ideas are original, her imagination impressive and the book jacket is my favourite of the year so far. (The Times)

Exquisitely poised between sweetness and darkness, this is a novel that revels in the power of myth and storytelling. (Financial Times)

Imaginative and spellbinding, this debut is full of magic and wonder. (The Sun)

Philip Pullman fans will love this poetic fantasy novel. (Daily Express)

... a magical debut novel that is beautiful in both its presentation and spellbinding tale of maps, myth and friendship. (The Guardian)
