Description

They're only worry is their mother, Renata, who spends her days shut up in her workhouse manipulating bones into beautiful creations for the Duchessa. I would love to come back to this family a little way in the future and see how things are working out for them. She has crafted the entire house they live in (side note, I will also take one of these houses, thank you), and is working on a series of boxes for the Duchessa, and she is due to deliver the last of these on Sofia’s birthday.

I love that the children are the main characters and heroes in this book, and that the adults are the villains.Julia and the Shark, in collaboration with her husband, artist Tom de Freston, was Indie Book of the Month, Scottish Booktrust Book of the Month, and has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2021. I can always get lost in Kiran’s books and forget the world around me, something that was very needed at the time I read this book. Podczas gdy "Dziewcyznka z atramentu i gwiazd" wabiła piękną oprawą graficzną i tematyką kartografii, "Wyspa na końcu świata" poruszała bardzo trudny temat i opowiadała o losach ludzi zarażonych trądem i zesłanych na odizolowaną wyspę, o tyle "Sofia, dziewczyna z kościanego domu" opowiada historię córki rzeźbiarki z kości, która wciąga już od pierwszych stron. When I'm not reading, I also like knitting, crafty things, baking, eating, walking, taking photos, watching traumatising medical dramas and nurturing a close relationship with my sofa and blankets.

Award-winning author Kiran Millwood Hargrave has woven a spellbinding historical story – beautifully written, atmospheric and full of mystery. Between them, her children's books have won numerous awards including Children's Book of the Year at the British Book Awards, the Waterstones Children's Book Prize, the Historical Association Young Quills Award, and the Blackwell's Children's Book of the Year. Many of the other characters were intriguing, but this is where I felt that the length of the story fell short: they felt somewhat underdeveloped, and if the book had been longer their motives could have been made much clearer.

Older villains are a common theme in books where children are the protagonists, but Hargrave does an especially good job of using this to portray the virtue of children's innocence and the corrupting effect of power in adults. W poprzedniej recenzji pisałam, że książki autorki kocham całym sercem nie tylko za dzieciństwo, magię i wiarę, ale za realizm i ten moment, który towarzyszy mi podczas czytania, a jest, nim zapomnienie o otaczającej mnie rzeczywistości. Poznasz zawód, jaki wykonuje mama oraz będziesz pokonywał różne dziwnie idealnie sprecyzowane, wyżłobione w kości klucze do znalezienia odpowiedzi. I only wish this was longer so we had more development of the story and got to understand the motivations of some of the characters better.
