A Monster Calls
A fantasy novel written for children by Patrick Ness from an original idea by Siobhan Dowd and illustrated by Jim Kay. Author Ness and illustrator Kay won the Carnegie Medal and the Greenaway Medal in 2012, the "year's best" children's literary awards by the British librarians (CILIP).

A Monster Calls is a book for aged nine and over. We think this might need revising upwards as our group of Yr 5 and Yr6 pupils didn't like it at all.
