Lost on land, can the Wild Deep set her free?
Cerrie Burnell is one of our best-known children's TV presenters and has in recent years made a name for herself as one of the most exciting new children's authors on the scene. Her picture book Snowflakes was performed at the Oxford Playhouse to great acclaim in 2016 and Harper, her fiction series, has been set to muisc by the Liverpool Philarmonic Orchestra. 'The Girl with the Shark's Teeth' is her stunning debut for middle grade readers.
`"Perfect bathtime reading for wannabe mermaids! Cerrie Burnell's lyrical, dreamy writing is like a love song to the sea in this voyage of adventure and self-discovery. The call of the deep will lure you into a richly-imagined world." ' Michelle Harrison, Author `"A bold adventure in a hugely imaginative world. The Girl with the Shark's Teeth sings like the sea!"' Sophie Anderson, Author `"The Girl with the Shark's Teeth glitters with fairytale magic: maps made of moonlight, pirate-hook mothers whose gaze can 'knock eagles from the sky' and fierce young gatekeepers shaking up seas. Wild and wonderful storytelling from one of the loveliest authors in the business."' Abi Elphinstone, Author `"Burnell makes her middle-grade debut with a vividly imagined magical adventure starring a 12-year-old girl with an irrestistible pull to the water."' Fiona Noble, The Bookseller `"The lyrical, breathless prose and relentless onslaught of new characters and images DS each more bizarre and wonderful than the last DS make this a cross between China Mieville and Liz Kessler."'
