The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2006.
Brought up by loving human parents, Barkbelly is a little wooden boy who goes on the run after a tragic accident. The world he encounters is full of the unexpected including pirates, giant hedgehogs and life in the circus. Barkbelly’s adventures take the reader on a roller coaster of the unexpected in a beautifully realised and extraordinary fantasy world. Perfect for reading aloud. (7+)
Barkbelly by Cat Weatherill
An adventure story set in a beautifully realised world that's almost but not quite like our own. Presenting poetry, magic, and dark twists of fate, this story discovers what can happen when your dreams come true, but not in the way you expect.
The Observer (U.K.) Fresh and inventive.
Michael Morpurgo, Children s Laureate (U.K.) A magical adventure . . . all these rich characters reflect real life but allow the reader to imagine the details for themselves.
