Harry Miller’s Run
David Almond, illustrations by Salvatore Rubbino
This thoughtful and moving story of inter-generational friendship and nostalgia was recently included in the Kirkus Book of the Year 2017 Awards. The highly influential US-based book review magazine recognised the warmth and humour of David Almond’s prose and the vibrant, yet naive style of Salvatore Rubbino’s pictures. As with much of Almond’s work, ‘Harry Miller’s Run’ is written in the dialect of the north-east, which adds to the story’s charm and authenticity. This is an excellent story/picture book for independent readers aged 6 and above.
