Skellig -

In our village every two years we have a Summer fair with a Scarecrow Competition and this was one of the Scarecrows about the main character ‘Skellig’ in a children’s novel by David Almond. A story about a boy who had a baby sister with a heart problem and he learned from his mother that “shoulder blades are where our wings used to be, when we were angels.”

The story is loosely based on a short story – “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” by Gabriel García Márquez.
