About this deal

Hargrave's fantastical world of bone magic and avian 'familiars' is fascinating, and the plot is fast-paced and mysterious; it consistently turns in unexpected directions, and the allure of discovering the book's magical secrets had me truly gripped. Sofia, dziewczyna z kościanego domu" to już kolejna książka Kiran Millwood Hargrave wydana w Polsce i tym razem również autorce udało się mnie totalnie oczarować. When mamma is arrested both children are sent to orphanage where Sofia finds a strength she didn’t know she had and meets a young boy who lives in the tunnels under the city.

Filled with gorgeous imagery of a historical town in Italy, this atmospheric middle grade was such a delight to read this spooky season. It’s not my favourite book by the author, The Deathless Girls and The Island at the End of Everything hold those places but for different reasons. Jako mama jestem wrażliwsza, kiedy dzieciakom przytrafia się krzywda i patrząc na drogę, jaką pokonali, żeby ratować mamę zasługuje na aplauz. I gave this to my 13 granddaughter who spends too much time looking at screens, she was (in the words of her mum) hooked and couldn’t put it down.I would love to come back to this family a little way in the future and see how things are working out for them. The Mercies debuted at number one of the The Times bestseller list, is a Sunday Time bestseller, and was selected for the BBC Radio 2 Book Club. Sofia and her little brother Ermin are sent to the convent orphanage but soon escape, led by an enigmatic new friend and their pet crow, Corvith. Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s dark and delightful new fantasy story for 9-12 year olds is full of beautiful detail and perfect for children with a taste for the gothic.

Bardzo wartościowa ksiazka, właśnie takie chciałabym widzieć na półce w biblioteczce moich dzieci, a także w swojej. Julia and the Shark, in collaboration with her husband, artist Tom de Freston, was Indie Book of the Month, Scottish Booktrust Book of the Month, and has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2021. Having read both Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s adult and YA fiction, I actually think that this curious little tale is my favourite although I would have liked to have learnt a little more about the wider world in which the story was set. Autorka przy pomocy kościanego kluczyka otwiera przed nami wrota zawiłości fabuły, otoczonej tajemnicą i przepełnionej klimatem baśni jakie znamy z dzieciństwa. Można ją czytać naprawdę niezależnie od wieku, bo młodszy czytelnik dostrzeże głównie przygody małej, dzielnej dziewczynki, a już troszkę starszy nastolatek wyciągnie z lektury zdecydowanie więcej.Posiadają wciągającą akcje, są napisane prostym językiem i przede wszystkim możemy nauczyć się sporo od bohaterów książki. The writing style and descriptions were fantastic and this definitely kept you wanting to turn the pages throughout. Od tego momentu zaczynają się przygody, o jakich nawet nie śnili w najczarniejszych snach, że mogą mieć miejsce. A moon-white skull still warm from last night’s fire was cupped over her feet, for here the nights were clear and cool.
