2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 Oct. 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a dark and troubling story of Filly and Feargal, a brother and sister who are so profoundly affected by their parents incessant arguments and fights that they become defined by them. Feargal no longer speaks, Filly spends all her time managing Feargal and doing the job her parents should be doing. The intervention of a magical bag lady toting a spoon shaped by a stray meteorite sends Filly, Feargal and their parents on a strange journey into and out the other side of their fear and anger. This is quite a profound book in many ways, but it is also rather upsetting. It does have a resolution of sorts, but what it offers a child or children who may be in the same position in reality is questionable. If you can find the edition with illustrations by Chris Riddell these help to bring out the more absurd and fantastic elements of the tale.

Format: Paperback
This is a really good book. It is about a boy called Fergal and his sister Filly, who are given the Meteorite Spoon by Mrs Whisper. She tells them to dig a hole and scream into it whenever there's an argument and they will feel better. After one argument between their parents the house falls down and Fergal and Filly are trapped under the rubble. They escape through a tunnel, which was once the hole that they had screamed into, and arrive on the island of Honeymoonia, where they are involved in a fantasy adventure.

Gave this to a little girl that I know as I read these books when I was a child. She was very happy.
