"A MONSTER CALLS" by Patrick Ness
"'Stories are wild creatures', the monster said. 'When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?'"
Rachel Levy, Children's Library Services Manager for Sutton Libraries and chair of the 2012 CILIP Carnegie judging panel said:
"A Monster Calls" is an exquisite piece of writing. It is a beautifully economical, structurally brilliant and lyrically descriptive account of a challenging episode in one child's life. One of our judges - bereaved at a young age - said she wished that she'd had "A Monster Calls" to read then, because while it describes the nature of grief with an extraordinary clarity it also fills the reader with a spirit of hopefulness and a love for life that is profound and lasting . We'd go so far as to say that this is one of the defining books of its generation".
