Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
Here's a rare thing, a novel, and a first novel too, that opens your eyes, touches your heart, and is so engaging it almost turns the pages for you. Michael Morpurgo An edge-of-your-seat wildlife adventure that tells a very human story of friendship, discovery and an incredible journey. I loved it! Kate Humble This beautifully written, captivating book should be on everyone's bookcase and in every library. It is for us all - young, old and in between. For it is about us all, our human nature, about nature itself, and how we relate to the wild creatures who face survival challenges we understand so little about. The skill with which Gill Lewis tells the haunting story of 'Sky Hawk' through the eyes and feelings of the children and her delicate, yet vivid, description of the wild Scottish landscape is breathtaking. Poignant. Unforgettable. Virginia McKenna
