The January cover of BfK features an illustration from No More Television!, the latest title from Philippe Dupasquier who is the subject of this month's Authorgraph. The book is published by Andersen Press and we're grateful to them for their help in using this on our front cover.
This - along with Hugh Scott's - is one of the most intriguing books I've ever read. 1999 is coming to an end and the weather is weird: storms, floods, earthquakes. Telly Craven is a Weather Eye, one of many children worldwide who monitor weather changes. After the death of a close friend and a blow to her head, which permits her to see beyond ordinary dimensions, she resolves to unite Weather Eyes to demonstrate that it's children who can effect change, and adults who cling onto outmoded security. A slow start may deter some readers but Year 8 pupils and above should be encouraged to persevere with this superlatively well-written book.
