Review

Skig is meant to be a warrior (but is really more of a worrier). There’s a giddy comet, which skids across the sky with its tail on fire. Put a marvellous new machine in your pocket, which promises to solve all of your life s problems.

Winner of the CLiPPA Award 2017 for children's poetry.
