David Almond’s Printz Honor–winning novel celebrates its 10th anniversary!

Ten-year-old Michael was looking forward to moving into a new house. But now his baby sister is ill, his parents are frantic, and Doctor Death has come to call. Michael feels helpless. Then he steps into the crumbling garage. . . . What is this thing beneath the spiders' webs and dead flies? A human being, or a strange kind of beast never before seen? The only person Michael can confide in is his new friend, Mina. Together, they carry the creature out into the light, and Michael's world changes forever. . . .

From the Trade Paperback edition.

"I thought he was dead. He was sitting with his legs stretched out and his head tipped back against the wall. He was covered with dust and webs like everything else and his face was thin and pale. Dead bluebottles were scattered on his hair and shoulders. I shined the flashlight on his white face and his black suit."

This is Michael's introduction to Skellig, the man-owl-angel who lies motionless behind the tea chests in the abandoned garage in back of the boy's dilapidated new house. As disturbing as this discovery is, it is the least of Michael's worries. The new house is a mess, his parents are distracted, and his brand-new baby sister is seriously ill. Still, he can't get this mysterious creature out of his mind--even as he wonders if he has really seen him at all. What unfolds is a powerful, cosmic, dreamlike tale reminiscent of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time. British novelist David Almond works magic as he examines the large issues of death, life, friendship, love, and the breathtaking connections between all things.

Amidst the intensity and anxiety of his world, Michael is a normal kid. He goes to school, plays soccer, and has friends with nicknames like Leakey and Coot. It's at home where his life becomes extraordinary, with the help of Skellig and Mina, the quirky, strong-willed girl next door with "the kind of eyes you think can see right through you." Mina and her mother's motto is William Blake's "How can a bird that is born for joy / Sit in a cage and sing?" This question carries us through the book, as we see Michael's baby sister trapped in a hospital incubator; as we see the exquisite, winged Skellig crumpled in the garage; as we meet Mina's precious blackbird chicks and the tawny owls in her secret attic; and as we finally see a braver, bolder Michael spread his wings and fly. Skellig was the Whitbread Award's 1998 Children's Book of the Year, and this haunting novel is sure to resonate with readers young and old. (Ages 10 and older) --Karin Snelson -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .


"Its strength as a novel is in its subtlety. . . . Skellig is a fine book." — The New York Times Book Review

"British novelist Almond makes a triumphant debut in the field of children’s literature with prose that is at once eerie, magical, and poignant." — Publishers Weekly, Starred

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hey,grownups! This one's for you, too. 25. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
How wonderful to find an author with the perception tounderstand that young people are capable of exploring andunderstanding the same concepts that adults like to see in good literature! Skellig has so many levels of meaning; faith, frienship, family, where do we fit in the grand scope of the universe... Like Louis Sachar's Holes, this novel has woven every story element into a complex, beautifully crafted reading adventure. It is sometimes dark, mystical, and eerie, but ultimately uplifting. Sure to become a classic! A perfect choice for reading groups that include mothers and daughters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen David Almond, Please Keep Writing! 13. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
We bought this book after reading a favorable review of it inthe New York Times Book Review. I was skeptical: for the most part,book reviews seem to get it wrong with respect to children's literature, believing that children most want gently-wrought, monosyllabic, dumbed-down stories. I read Skellig to my six-year-old daughter. We could not put it down. The man/angel, Skellig, is a character not often found in children's literature: he is gentle, plaintive, weird, human, ethereal and a little spooky all at once. Needless to say, we were both boo-hooing by the end. One word about the beginning: don't be put off by its rather formulaic start, i.e., new house, unfamiliar school, sick baby, dark garage. The amalgam of events, and especially the way David Almond presents them, makes Skellig one that should or should have received the Newberry.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A beautiful fantasy -- you won't want it to end 30. Mai 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As a young-adult writer, I read many books for this age group. Often, they tend to be formulaic. Not Skellig! From the moment Michael discovers the strange creature -- man, bird, or angel? -- in his parents' garage, I was taken in. You will be too, whether you're a child or an adult. Almond's attention to detail (Would an other-worldly being eat chinese food?) is what gets you. But what holds you are Michael's "real world" problems, his baby sister's illness, his family's move, the fact that his old friends, Leakey and Coot, think his new friend, Mina, strange. I was unable to put this book down until I found the resolution. I'll be buying a copy for my 10-year-old nephew, but I recommend it for both kids and adults.

3.0 von 5 Sternen The Skellig Review 8. März 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Skellig is an unrealistic yet unique book which is also profound. It gradually describes Skellig, leaving you beguiled as to what Skellig really is. David Almond has produced a really powerful intensifying book which pulls at your heartstrings till the very end. This unforgettable,'unputdownable'book is a book worth remembering. I would recommend this book to anybody who desire to read something special.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Review of Skellig 24. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Skellig is an exciting and extraordinary book. I think it's a remarkable novel full of faith, truth, and love. When I read it I was left with a good feeling inside. It also left me wondering about what Skellig really was. The book gives you the idea that he's an old, dirty man that lives in a garage at first, but changes as you read on. David Almond did a great job writing this book. He used good details when writing about Skellig. The book takes place in a small town. Michael just moved into a new yet dilapidated house that is pretty close to his old house. The new house is a mess, his parents are distracted, and his little sister is very ill. When he walked into his new garage he saw an old dusty room that can easyily colapse. He looks around and finds an old, dirty man sitting on a chest,Skellig. After that Michael coundn't stop thinking about him. He gets up each night thinking about him. Michael and his new friend Mina try to help him and make him strong again, but Skellig doesn't have the will to do it. To find out what happens to Skellig you'll have to read the book yourself.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great read-aloud book 5. April 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Skellig is a real page-turner. I challenge anyone to read thefirst chapter and put the book down; you can't do it. The story isoffbeat enough to make it interesting, but grounded in the strong emotions and sharply drawn characters that inhabit it. I read aloud to my kids every night and we often have trouble picking a book. My older kids want something with depth, a chapter book, my six-year-old son wants a picture book with a quick resolution. When he saw me pull out Skellig, he was not pleased. That quickly changed. All three of them are hanging on every word as this mysterious tale unfolds. Even if the story were not as good as it is, they would be mesmerized by the lyrical writing and perfectly captured child's-eye view of the young hero and narrator. But the story is top notch, with enough suspense, drama and sheer joy that they rush through their showers and their tooth-brushing every night in the hopes of getting an extra chapter. This is the best thing we've read since Roald Dahl's Matilda - and that says a lot.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Skellig by David Almond 17. Februar 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Skellig was a good book for me to read. It involves fact and fiction. A human that have wings and William Blake, the poet. A boy finds a man in his garage who has lived there a long time. He tries to help him but the man just keeps ignoring him. The boy's siter was born premature but the man ends up helping her get better.
I liked this story because it was so easy for me to get involved and I wanted to read from start to finish at once. I really enjoyed the story and I learnt something from it too. I enjoyed it as well as learning about William Blake and his poems. It was a
I would like to read other books from David Almond's collection.
It was a weird book because I couldn't imagine a human with wings living in a garage. Also, I would like to congratulate David Almond on creating and writing a fascinating story.
