really liked it
Read in March, 2012

The story is brief and as in other David Almond stories the reader must suspend disbelief and accept exceptional even supernatural experiences and emotions of the characters. For me this is not difficult as Almond's prose style invites and mesmerises and it would not be courteous to deny the invitation.
The text is brief and the illustrations by Dave McKean fill those spaces in the imagination and psyche of Slog that the author does not articulate.
It seems to me that the book effectively and emotively uses words and pictures to allow the reader to sympathise and engage with feelings they would hopefully not have experienced at first hand, but if they had this book okays the notion that if you believe then sometimes the irrational and impossible may truly happen.
