A Cool Review for Shine in the Guardian

Shine by Candy Gourlay
'A precious and important novel that also explores exile from neighbours, family and country. The book is about reinvention and the faces we present to the world, whether it be in person, on a postcard or on the internet, all wrapped up in an exciting and perfectly paced story with a disturbing and dramatic climax.'
Philip Ardagh, The Guardian

Jim Kay of A Monster Calls: Trying Not To Draw

I posted this caption story on my Facebook page then I thought ... why not blog it as well?



I was totally blown away by A Monster Calls - not just Patrick Ness's brilliant take of the late Siobhan Dowd's story idea but by the astounding illustrations of Jim Kay.
