The Lovereading4Kids comment
The Filth Licker is the eagerly awaited sequel to Takeshita Demons, winner of the inaugural Diverse Voices Children's Book Award. Cristy Burne's gripping story of Miku, a feisty young Japanese girl living in England, and her fight against the Takeshita Demons is a fast-paced and hugely entertaining contemporary adventure. The novel is interspersed with some Manga style illustrations from the author/illustrator of The Manga Bible.
The author on her inspiration for the Takeshita Demons series:
'The demons are all real: just as Western cultures have vampires and werewolves and witches, japanese people have kappa and oni. I first heard of these demons while living in Japan working as a techer and studying Japanese and their culture.'
Takeshita Demons 2 : The Filth Licker by Cristy Burne
Miku is going to School Camp in the forest, with her friend Cait and the rest of her class. It should be fun. But Miku has premonitions of danger, and when Oscar goes down with a festering rash, and a rushing wind blows out the bonfire she's sure something bad is going on. Then Alex finds the frog-like Filth-Licker in the boys' toilets, and all at once Miku, Cait and Alex are on a secret mission to overcome the vengeful Shape-Shifters or Super Demons before it's too late! Later that night, with Alex kidnapped by a pyromaniac fox, and Cait possessed by some angry sickle weasels, it's up to Miku and the Filth-Licker to save them all from disaster. Coming in 2012 Takeshita Demons: Monster Matsuri.
