Synopsis

Miki by Stephen Mackey

On Midwinter Eve, Miki and her friend Penguin find their wishes come true, as they are given a little tree to brighten up their cold, dark home. However, keeping the fairy lights twinkling takes more energy than even the great Polar Bear can muster. Miki's friends worry when she suddenly disappears, but her magical underwater journey provides her with a light that is everlasting. Set in a timeless, frozen place with dark blue skies and stark snowy landscapes in beautiful tones, this book evokes winter so thoroughly that the reader cannot fail to snuggle up somewhere cosy and read it.

Reviews

Destined to become a classic. Irish Independent Soft focus pictures beautifully convey this icy world. The Bookseller ...hauntingly-evoked and dreamlike worlds... Bournemouth Echo ... a beautifully crafted and atmospheric story... CHILD EDUCTAION PLUS 'Miki is a beautifully crafted and atmospheric story.

'There is a real sense of wonder in this book, illustrated in glorious blues and greens, with characters set simply in uncluttered backgrounds for maximum impact. The pages are thick and glossy, and altogether this is a sumptuous production, which may well become a favourite with adults and young children.'
