    Om The Fire Eaters

    There he was, below the bridge, half-naked, eyes blazing. He had a pair of burning torches. He ran them back and forth across his skin. He sipped from a bottle, breathed across a torch, and fire and fumes leapt from his lips. The air was filled with the scent of paraffin. He breathed again, a great high spreading flag of fire. He glared. He roared like an animal. That summer, life had seemed perfect for Bobby Burns. But now it's autumn and the winds of change are blowing hard. Bobby's dad is mysteriously ill. His new school is a cold and cruel place. And worse: nuclear war may be about to start. But Bobby has a wonder-working friend called Ailsa Spink. And he's found the fire-eater, a devil called McNulty. What can they do together on Bobby's beach? Is it possible to work miracles? Will they be able to transform the world? A stunning novel from the author of the modern children's classic Skellig - winner of the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Children's Book Award. David Almond is also winner of the 2010 Hans Christian Andersen award. (P) Hodder Children's Books 2003


    An affecting meditation on pain, cruelty, class, belonging and the redeeming power of love. A beautiful and brilliant novel. There really is nobody quite like Almond. This is beautifully written and polished to a lapidary gloss. A wonderful novel. An astonishing, beautiful tale. Almond at his best. A tale so marvellously told it seems a shame to label it as only for children. Stays with you long after the book is closed. Almond makes familiar issues fresh; his characters are finely drawn and his depiction of place perfectly realised. Lyrical and atmospheric. A near-perfect piece of fiction.
