Skellig - David Almond


I read this tight little fable to test whether my daughter would like it. I don't think she would, but I think I did. It covered a lot of ground for a YA novella, and I'm not sure I understood it all but I can understand why it's become a classic. A less obvious feature were the subtle hints at a Tyneside setting, cleverly entwined into the story.
