Sky is the story of a girl’s magical adventure in Scotland.

Lara and her parents go to stay with her grandparents in the Scottish Highlands for the Christmas holidays.  Initially, Lara is reluctant to go because she doesn’t want to leave her friends behind.  However, she loves her grandparents and is also full of anticipation for the stay.  It seems her grandad has spotted a very rare Snowy Owl in the area and he and Lara set out for a walk to see if they can see the owl again.

Over the next few days, Lara ventures out and each time she finds the owl and takes photographs.  The owl seems to be beckoning Lara to follow it and leads Lara to a big house, where she encounters a girl called Amelia.  She is dressed in clothes from another era and very soon Lara realises she seems to have been magically transported back in time.  Amelia confides in Lara that her cousin Arthur collects birds’ eggs and is determined to steal the eggs of the Snowy Owl.  How can Lara help the owl and return to her own time?
