Description: Shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2021. Shortlisted for the James Cropper Wainwright Prize for Children's Writing on Nature & Conservation 2022. 'Days before lockdown there was a fire in my studio that destroyed twelve years worth of work. From the burnt out husk I rescued burnt frames, bags of ash, fragments of destroyed artworks. Much of the artwork for Julia and the Shark was made using these materials, as an act of mourning, transformation and repair. It reflects the central message of the book, that even in the deepest darkness there is always the light of hope.' - Tom de Freston. A timeless story of family, hope and environmental crisis from the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-winning author of The Girl of Ink and Stars that is also a stunning work of visual art, Julia and the Shark has been taken to our booksellers’ hearts like no other children’s novel. When her father is required to repair an old lighthouse on a remote island, Julia finds herself on a strange and magical summer holiday. Her mother becomes increasingly determined to find the great Greenland shark – an awesome yet elusive creature that soon fills Julia’s thoughts as well. But when her mother’s determination tips over into obsession, Julia is forced to dive into an adventure with hidden depths and turbulent emotional currents which threatens to submerge them all. With breathtaking black, white and yellow illustrations created using the ashes from the fire that destroyed de Freston's studio, Julia and the Shark is both a testament to artistic rebirth and an exquisite reflection on family, science and the fragile yet sublime beauty of the environment. Intoxicating and impossible to put down, it is a future classic whose beauty and heart will resound for generations.

Review: This middle grade book certainly packs a punch (in a good way!) From the amazing illustrations to the story being told from Julia’s point of view, it is the perfect middle grade book. Julia’s life as she knew it was turned upside down one summer when her parents headed several hundred miles north from their Cornish home to fulfil the opportunities that they had both been looking for. Poor Julia and Noodle (the cat) just had to pack-up their belongings and follow them, even though they really didn’t want to go. What then transpires is a narrative with so many hidden depths, all of which, I must admit I am not sure that I have uncovered in a single read of this book. I know that I will revisit this book, probably more than once as I really want to read this aloud to as many children as I can, so they too can share the joy and sorrow of this amazing book. Of course, I would willing read this aloud to adults too, as I really think anyone, and everyone should read this book. This is a comforting hug of a book, from the writing style and the beautiful descriptions of the bleak sea to the sense of community on the Scottish Island of Unst when Julia and her family needed people the most. It deals with some hard-hitting topics well, and even offers support and resources to help deal with these topics from a child’s perspective. I agree that this is a book for 9+ years, because of the topics discussed. Another book that I highly recommend, I read this in a day, curled up under a blanket with several cups tea and a few biscuits, so when you do settle down with this book, make sure you have no plans. Oh yes, and don’t forget the tissues.
