Tender Morsels, Margo Lanagan (David Fickling Books) FICTION

A dark, funny and frightening novel about a 15-year old girl who experiences dreadful trauma and is then magically transported to a safe haven where she rears her two children amongst Magicked men and wild bears (mostly cuddly -  sometimes a bit too much so). But the real world cannot be shut out forever. Wonderful writing.

pb. £7.99

"A dangerous, edgy and entrancing read. From the first page I was delving into a dark wood and an adult fairy-tale. Like the title it was tender morsels and I didn't want to consume all of them so fast. So I had to try to limit myself to how many pages I read to savour it. Great Stuff." Sally Ratcliffe
