Crackly Bones Deluxe Large Format Full Colour Edition An illustrated children's book in collaboration with artist Simon Schild. Three hundred years ago from now, when land was tilled with horse and plough An innocent man was hunted down, and thrown into a lake to drown Over time, the lake stagnated, and memory of the man abated But one dark night there came a storm, and Crackly Bones, the fiend, was born! Synopsis Three hundred years ago, an innocent man was accused of wizardry, and the lies of a child led to his murder at the hands of a frenzied mob. Tonight, he’s back for his revenge. The villagers are stirred into action when signs of Crackly Bones’ impending arrival are witnessed. Led by Jones, the owner of the public house, the people gather and agree to fight, a decision that will have devastating consequences for the entire village. Overview Crackly Bones is a morally complex tale aimed at adults and older children. It is an updated, modern take on the grisly fairy tales of old, told entirely in rhyme. It is a very dark story, focusing on a monster that boils down naughty children in his big black pot, in order to use the fleshy brew to feed his garden. However, things are not so black and white, and readers will find that by the end of the story they have a certain amount of sympathy for Crackly Bones, as it emerges that there is a history of lies and murder, and blood on the hands of the villagers’ descendants. Amazon Reviews: This is a wonderful book and very cleverly done. I never thought I'd like a book written entirely in verse, but this one works! OK so it is not War and Peace length, but the story is good, the verse is good and the illustrations are good. For the price how can you possibly go wrong? This is really good, the illustrations are excellent & even though I don't usually go for 'poetry' this is a good story - great for kids & adults alike. I could see this being adapted for TV. Go ahead & buy it, you won't regret it. A great bargain. I just love it! What am I most impressed by? The illustrations? The story itself? Or the fact that someone has managed to create a whole book in rhyme without being nonsensical? A well crafted item and one that you could see being picked up by a major publisher or an animated story on TV....Biografía del autor:
