(2 ratings)


In Scarper Lee's world, parents don't make children – children make parents. Scarper's father is his pride and joy, a wind-powered brass construction with a billowing sail. His mother is a Bakelite hairdryer. In this world, it rains knives and household appliances have souls. There are no birthdays – only deathdays. Scarper knows he has just three weeks to live. As his deathday approaches, he is forced from his routine and strikes out into the unknown – where friendships are tested and authority challenged. This unsettling and fiercely original coming of age story from Rob Davis ( The Complete Don Quixote) traces a journey through a bizarre, distorted teenage landscape: a world not so different from our own.  Best Book, British Comic Awards 2015
