Product description


Both original and unnerving, this really is a fantastic book. - THE BOOKSELLER

Tranfixing - just the novel to usher in the new millennium! - THE LITERARY REVIEW

David Almond understands the joy and fear of being alive better than most - Heaven Eyes is a mysterious gift of a novel. - THE TIMES

Almond's powerfully original talent has won him the Whitbread and the Carnegie, and really could - or anyway should - win him the Booker. - bol.com, 17/9/00

'Almond's eerie tale is an astonishing piece of writing about the way that the living and the dead find comfort in each aother . . . A very grown-up, totally compelling book, that, like Almond's brilliant SKELLIG, is about the lost and found, abandonment and redemption, love and faith - particularly faith in yourself and others. - The Guardian

About the Author

David Almond's first novel for children, SKELLIG, won the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year and the Carnegie Medal, and his second, KIT'S WILDERNESS, won the Smarties Award Silver Medal. Following the further success of HEAVEN EYES, David is widely regarded as one of the most exciting and innovative children's authors writing today. His books, which have been translated into over twenty languages, are bestsellers all over the world. David lives with his family in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

3.0 out of 5 stars New Cover design
Reviewed in the United States on 17 November 2018
I was under the impression I was ordering the book with the original cover design, as shown. The one I grew up with. However, I got the book with the “new cover design”. I’m not a fan of the new design and was quite sadden to see I didn’t get the book I was shown. However, the contents are still the same....
