The bestselling novel and major film about love, loss and hope from the twice Carnegie Medal-winning Patrick Ness.Conor has the same dream every night, ever since his mother first fell ill, ever since she started the treatments that don't quite seem to be working. But tonight is different. Tonight, when he wakes, there's a visitor at his window. It's ancient, elemental, a force of nature. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. Patrick Ness takes the final idea of the late, award-winning writer Siobhan Dowd and weaves an extraordinary and heartbreaking tale of mischief, healing and above all, the courage it takes to survive.

The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do. But it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming... This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. In a unique pairing of Carnegie Medal winners, Patrick Ness spins an extraordinarily moving tale of love, loss and hope from the final idea of Siobhan Dowd, whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself. This moving novel is brought to life with extraordinary award-winning illustrations from Jim Kay, which add an extra dimension to the story. What are the key themes? The key themes running through the book are family, death, truth, suffering, isolation and coming to terms with loss. Book Review 'Pearson's New Windmills collection brings together an incredible range of titles that teachers can trust, ideal for KS3, GCSE and beyond. From October 2014, Patrick Ness' extraordinarily powerful novel about a teenager struggling to deal with his mother's terminal illness will be added to the list; along with teacher support materials underpinned by the University of Exeter's Grammar for Writing pedagogy, and back of book comprehension activities. Based on an original idea by the author Siobhan Dowd, who died before she could write the story, A Monster Calls is bleakly beautiful, unflinchingly honest and utterly compelling. A tumbling, ragged storm of intense, chaotic emotions is masterfully contained within Ness' unflinching prose, and Jim Kay's illustration are hauntingly atmospheric. Short chapters and contemporary language help to ensure the text is accessible as possible, despite touching on themes with the potential to stretch the creative and critical thinking skills of your most able students.' www.teachsecondary.com

Discover the incredible story behind the creation of A Monster Calls, the new film from visionary director J. A. Bayona (The Impossible), based on the acclaimed novel by Patrick Ness. A Monster Calls tells the story of Conor O’Malley (Lewis MacDougall), a young boy whose world has been turned upside down by his mother’s (Felicity Jones) terminal illness. Conor’s life is thrown further into disarray when he is visited by a gigantic monster, formed from the bark of a tree in a nearby churchyard. The monster vows to tell Conor three stories over several visits and demands that Conor must then tell his own story. As his mother’s health worsens and Conor struggles to deal with everyday life and the visits of the monster, he must confront his worst fears to survive. Also featuring the voice of Liam Neeson as the monster, plus an exceptional performance by Sigourney Weaver as Conor’s grandmother, A Monster Calls is an emotionally gripping tale delivered with style and panache by director J. A. Bayona, whose next film is the much-anticipated Jurassic World 2. This book tells the full story of the creation of A Monster Calls through revealing interviews with the cast and crew—including Bayona, MacDougall, Jones, Neeson, and Weaver—and stunning behind-the-scenes visuals, such as concept art and on-set stills. The Art of A Monster Calls also delves into the electrifying special effects that bring the titular behemoth to life and the creation of the unique animated segments that accompany the monster’s stories in the film. The ultimate companion to one of the most exceptional films of 2016, The Art of A Monster Calls is a must-have for film fans.
