Geraldine McCaughrean has written more than 125 books, been published in twenty-five countries, and won a dozen major awards, including the prestigious Carnegie Medal.   She lives in Berkshire, England with her husband John, daughter Ailsa, and Daisy the dog.   [from Casting the Gods Adrift (2002)]



Simply LOVED it. Taking after Charles and Mary Lamb, McCaughrean tells beautifully illustrated versions of the stories of ten classic ballets. This was given to my sister (a dancer) when she was about 9; strangely I, who cannot dance to save my life, was the one rapt by it. To this day, I have a particularly strong love of the ballets "The Firebird", "Petrouchka" and "Gisele" because of this book. Love it.

It is summer on the remote island of St. Kilda, and a group of men and boys are preparing for the annual hunting journey to Warrior Stac, a small, barren, rocky island in the outer Hebrides. A small boat ferries them to the outcropping and drops them off, and the small band immediately sets to work preparing a shelter for the next few weeks and commencing hunting of the seafowl who visit the island to nest this time of year. All goes swimmingly, their haul bountiful, until it becomes apparent that the return boat isn't coming for them.

I quite enjoyed this novel (I admit to being somewhat partial to survival/adventure tales), as well as McCaughrean's writing. For a while I thought we were heading down a road to full-blown Lord of the Flies, but thankfully, though it was at times disturbing, the breakdown of society didn't sink quite to that level, and the story had sufficient nuance and imagination to make it distinct. That it was based on true events was icing on the cake.

It had me at Dragons. Two Chinese Dragons on the cover had to be read. It's a tale of two countries side by side who could do with cooperating but instead they fight, escalating warfare until they both get Dragons who fight with each other.

Short and I wanted more, but the illustrations are glorious
