"Almond/McKean is a double act that's hard to beat. The third of their graphic novel collaborations is the most beautiful, but perhaps also the most unsettling. The writing is powerfully emotional; the pictures, brilliantly arresting." --Guardian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The dream team of David Almond and Dave McKean bring us a complete story set in an incomplete world.See all Product Description

This is very like one of the creation myths from Ted Hughes stories, and I thought of his work as I read this. The gods create a strange and beautiful world, but it is unfinished. They lose interest and when they do, three humans start to fill in the gaps, pulling creatures from their souls and minds with increasingly troubling results.
You can read this story on lots of levels and it works as a simple 'fairy' story as well as a deeper myth.
This is a sort of fable or fairy-tale (without fairies) about creation or the creative imagination, and the things that can go wrong when you get caught up in a creative endeavour without considering the consequences. Other reviewers have described it as a children’s book, and it no doubt is a superb one, but grown-ups with a bit of imagination might find it entertaining also.
Davis Almond and Dave Mckean are my favourite authors and illustrators. I have read the book numerous times already.
