Swan Boy

Swan Boy
Written by Nikki Sheehan
Oneworld Publications £6.99
ISBN: 978-1780749242

Shades of Billy Elliot colour this beautifully realised tale about the power of creativity and the imagination to transcend personal trauma. Johnny is struggling with the pressures of a new home, a new school and a bully who won't leave him alone.  Since his father died he's also supported his mum by keeping an eye on his younger brother.  An extraordinary incident involving a swan is the trigger for some remarkable changes for Johnny; his teacher casts him in the lead role in a school ballet and then feathers start to appear on his chest.  This is such a satisfying story which leaves you with feelings of warmth and hope. Elaine Chant
