The Carnegie and Greenaway Medals have for the first time been awarded to the same book, ‘A Monster Calls’. Nicolette Jones talks to its creators, the children’s writer Patrick Ness and illustrator Jim Kay
Watched the movie last Monday. And OMG, I can't keep my tears from falling. 😢 the pain is surreal. I remember my parents when I said goodbye to them in the hospital and God knows I know how Connor felt. I knew how painful it was.
I can't express just how heartbreakingly perfect and important this book is. Jim Kay's illustrations are so stunning and I feel like it should be required reading! Not sure how I feel about the film that's coming out of it, but will probably go and see it anyway ^^ #AMonsterCalls #PatrickNess #JimKay #SiobhanDowd #WalkerBooks #monochromebooks #illustratedbooks #teenbooks #teenfiction #bookseller #booklover #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer
