Product description

Wonderfully weird: as surreal and vivid as the strangest dream you’ve ever had. A sick baby. A wasp’s nest. An angel…? Like Skellig all grown up, this is getting the entire YA world talking. Think summer is a sun-soaked season of fun? Not for Steve. For him, it’s a season of worries. Worries about his sick newborn brother. Worries about his struggling parents. Heck, he even worries about the wasp’s nest looming ominously from the eaves. (It seems to be getting bigger all the time.) So when a wasp queen invades his dreams, offering to heal the baby, Steve is tempted. All he has to do is say ‘yes’. But ‘yes’ is a powerful word; a dangerous word. Once he says it, can he ever take it back?

  • A mysterious, powerful and compelling book by a major author
  • Horrifying, beautiful, uplifting, moving and eerie in equal measures
  • Dark, dreamy and beautifully illustrated by top talent Jon Klassen
  • “A beautifully written book about the important things in life” – Marcus Sedgwick
