The Lovereading4Kids comment
Sally Prue’s compelling debut is unlike anything we’ve seen here for a long time. Written in a beautifully lyrical style, it explores the nature of human relationships and issues of identity, all within an impressive and at times chilling tale.
Hunted by his parents, Tom is forced to flee the Tribe and so seeks refuge in the world of ‘The Demons,’ where he encounters Anna, a girl whose own fractured family life provides a poignant reminder of human fragility. A dark splendour emerges throughout the tale as Tom struggles to find safety and sanctity between these two very different worlds. This is without doubt a highly original piece of writing which should be experienced by young and old alike.
Cold Tom by Sally Prue
Tom is one of the Tribe. But he is not like the others - he is clumsy and heavy, and the Tribe drive him away into the demon city. But Tom can't live with demons either - they are so hot, so foul, and he knows they are trying to enslave his mind. But there is nowhere else to run. Between the savage Tribe and the stifling demons, is there any way out for Tom? A beautiful and exciting story about Tom, caught between his elfin home and the world of humans.
