From the first page I was drawn into this very real novel which has at its heart an ecological message. The characters are truly believable and the language of this novel is poetic and beautiful. For anyone with an interest in wildlife and conservation issues, I would strongly suggest they buy this debut novel by emerging writer Gill Lewis. I hope it won't be her last book! * Charlotte Westwood, 13, First News, The Weekly Newspaper for Kids * I loved Sky Hawk-it's a tremendously assured debut novel and it reminded me very much of the books Michael Morpurgo writes.
I can see teachers wanting to share this one with their classes because its themes are simultaneously diverse and universal, but I also think it's a book for all ages to savour at home.
Highly recommended. * Jill Murphy (www.thebookbag.co.uk ) * Rich in atmosphere and full of heart, Sky Hawk is an intense and touching story of how protecting a rare bird forges a deep and special friendship between two children . . . Sky Hawk is an enthralling tale about a promise between two friends, Callum and Iona, that will change lives forever, and the power of friendship, loyalty, and hope. A book to treasure. * Julia Eccleshare, Guardian * An edge-of-your-seat wildlife adventure that tells a very human story of friendship, discovery and an incredible journey. I loved it! * Kate Humble, Presenter of BBC's Springwatch and Autumnwatch * This beautifully written, captivating book should be on everyone's bookcase. Breathtaking. Poignant. Unforgettable. * Virginia McKenna, Founder of the Born Free Foundation * Opens your eyes, touches your heart, and is so engaging it almost turns the pages for you. * Michael Morpurgo, Former Children's Laureate *show more
