THE GIRL OF INK AND STARS is Waterstones Book of the Month

3rd May 2016|Book Launches

Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s “simply stunning debut” The Girl of Ink & Stars has been chosen as Waterstones’ Children’s Book of the Month for May 2016.

That rare thing – a genuinely timeless, heart-on-its-sleeve adventure – this fictional debut from Oxford-based Kiran Millwood Hargrave is as beautifully produced as it is written.”

More than perhaps anything else, The Girl of Ink & Stars is a tale of pure courage, of how belief and self-will can overcome all. Isabella is a cartographer’s daughter, the devastated, monster-filled world once mapped by her father now largely off-limits beyond her city’s walls.

When her best friend goes missing within this wasteland, Isabella – with her unique knowledge of maps and stars – implicitly understands she can find her, immediately electing to lead a mission to bring her friend home.
