​A magical adventure story with a strong female lead and overtones of Pullman and C.S. Lewis, ‘Sky Song’ will whisk you away into an enchanting fantasy world.

Set in an icy landscape populated by a power-hungry Ice Queen, tribes of children living in secret hide-outs and delightful magical animals, this text cleverly explores how the ‘magic’ of acceptance and tolerance can advance personal and societal change.

On their quest to save the kingdom from the clutches of the Ice Queen, adventurers Eska and Flint discover that long-standing borders between different tribes can be broken down and that o

penness and courage are better markers of identity than ethnicity or class. Fast-paced and sparkling with magic on every page, this book is a real delight.

A free scheme of work for KS2 is also available via the author's website.
