Skellig – David Almond

skellig

Michael was looking forward to his new house and neighborhood, until his infant sister became very ill.  Now his parents are constantly frantic, the scary doctor is always coming around, and Michael feels helpless.  When he goes out into the old rickety garage, he comes across a mysterious being living beneath spider webs and eating flies for dinner.  This creature calls himself Skellig, and over the weeks Michael and his new friend Mina bring Skellig out in to the light, and their worlds change forever.

There was something absolutely compelling about this book. It wasn’t that long, and was easy to read, and fascinated me from the first time that Michael meets Skellig. What is he? If you are looking for something a little different, try this book out. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
