It has been both challenging and exhilarating to work with eminent researchers across the world in preparing this Palgrave Macmillan Casebook on the work of British writer David Almond. David Almond’s books have somehow struck that elusive balance of appealing to both critics and readers, including and most especially young readers. In 2010 Almond won the highly prestigious biennial Hans Christian Andersen Award, which recognises the lasting contribution to children’s literature of a living author. He has also won the Carnegie Medal (for Skellig in 1998), the Whitbread Children’s Award (twice), based both on literary merit and popular appeal, and numerous other international awards and prizes. A complete list of books may be found in the Further Reading section.
