We are absolutely thrilled to announce that the beautiful Middle Grade book, A Kind Of Spark, by the amazingly talented Elle McNicoll has been made the Blackwell’s Children’s Book of the Year! Congratulations Elle, we are unbelievably proud of you!
‘A Kind of Spark’ tells the story of 11-year-old Addie as she campaigns for a memorial in memory of the witch trials that took place in her Scottish hometown. Addie knows there’s more to the story of these ‘witches’, just like there is more to hers. Can Addie challenge how the people in her town see her, and her autism, and make her voice heard?
