|Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis|
Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis.
Sky Hawk is about a boy called Callum (he’s about eleven or twelve) and a girl called Iona (same age as Callum). Iona has a secret that no-one else knows but now she is going to tell Callum. Oh poo, now I can’t tell you what the secret’s about because it will ruin it…!
The book is set in Scotland. There is an osprey nesting on the McGregor’s farm. It’s windy, snowy, pretty much typical English weather (lol). This book is about animals, friendship between people, and trying to save things.
I enjoyed it a lot. I also cried a lot in some parts but smiled in some parts. A terrible thing happens twice (two different things). The first one was very, very, very sad. It made me cry. And the second one, in the end, made me happy.
I’ve never read anything like this before. I would recommend Sky Hawk to bird-lovers, Michael Morpurgo fans, and ages 9-13 and a little bit older.
For me a message of the book was that you can find something even if it’s far away.
