Michael and his family have just moved to a new home and his baby sister is very ill. He soon discovers a decrepit being in the dilapidated garage. Is Skellig a human being or a creature from another world? Michael and his new friend, the independently minded Mina, try to find out. David Almond allows his readers to wonder and think about what they have read rather than offering any clear answers.
