The Colour of the Sun

by David Almond
£7.99   paperback  Hodder Children's Books (2019)

The Colour of the Sun by David Almond This is a moving, funny and inspirational novel from the bestselling author of Skellig.
Shortlisted for the 2018 Costa Book Awards.
 
"The day is long, the world is wide, you're young and free."
 
One hot summer morning, Davie steps boldly out of his front door. The world he enters is very familiar - the little Tyneside town that has always been his home - but as the day passes, it becomes ever more mysterious.
 
A boy has been killed, and Davie thinks he might know who is responsible. He turns away from the gossip and excitement and sets off roaming towards the sunlit hills above the town.
 
As the day goes on, the real and the imaginary start to merge, and Davie knows that neither he nor his world will ever be the same again.
 
This an outstanding novel full of warmth and light, from a multi-award-winning author. David Almond says: 'I guess it embodies my constant astonishment at being alive in this beautiful, weird, extraordinary world.'
