In his exceptional, delicate writing, prize-winning author David Almond weaves together many strands which together give an intimate insight into the thinking of two boys growing up in his familiar Northumberland countryside. Against a background of fighter planes swooping overhead, the boys follow the jackdaw to the unexpected find of an abandoned baby. How they interpret the jackdaw, their reactions to finding the baby and their interactions with each other make a moving and thoughtful story told with exceptional elegance.

 

 

David Almond novels in order of publication: SkelligKit’s Wilderness, Heaven Eyes, Counting Stars, Secret Heart, The Fire-Eaters, Clay and most recently Jackdaw Summer.
