Winner of the Carnegie Medal. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Or is it an angel? When Michael finds a strange winged creature in his garage, a story of mystery and wonder unfolds… Michael has a new baby sister. But she’s very sick – maybe dying. As his parents spend their days at the hospital, life seems lonely and uncertain. Then Michael finds an impossible creature: a winged man hiding in the garage. Is Skellig good – or maybe evil? Part owl – or part angel? Can he help Michael to save his tiny sister, and stick his broken world together again?
