The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning author/ illustrator team David Almond and Dave McKean have followed up The Savage with an equally stunning new book told partly as a graphic novel and partly as a story. Full of the kind of mystery David Almond created in his best-selling Skellig, Slog’s Dad tells how, after his father’s death, Slog copes with his acute feelings of loss and how he finds an embodiment of his father in whom he can believe. Whether the scruffy figure outside the butcher is really his father or not, Slog believes in him. As ever, David Almond’s writing is vivid and Dave McKean’s illustrations bring the story powerfully to life.
Slog's Dad by David Almond
Part story, part graphic novel - a tender slice of life and death from the creators of The Savage . Do you believe there's life after death? Slog does. He reckons that the scruffy bloke sitting outside the pork shop is his dad come back to visit him for one last time - just like he'd said he would, just before he died. Slog's mate Davie isn't convinced. But how does this man know everything Slog's dad would know? Because Slog says it really is his dad, that's how.
