Joe Quinn's Poltergeist

By David Almond

Illustrated by Dave McKean

A dark, powerful and moving short story from the internationally acclaimed author of Skellig.

A beautifully imagined story for fans of Neil Gaiman, by the dream team of bestselling author, David Almond and award-winning artist, Dave McKean. Joe Quinn tells everyone about the poltergeist in his house, but no one believes him. No one that is, except for Davie. He’s felt the inexplicable presence in the rooms, he’s seen random objects fly through the air. And there’s something else … a memory of his beloved sister, and a feeling deep down that somehow it might be possible for ghosts to exist.

'“In the arresting style of their earlier collaborations, McLean’s visuals give life to the dark, otherworldly soul of Almond’s short story.”' The Bookseller, Children’s March Previews
