Greaves shortlisted for Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2014

The Skull in the Wood, the debut novel by Sandra Greaves has been shortlisted for the prestigious Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2014. The prize was set up to honour the very best new and emergent writers of children’s fiction, and has helped to launch the careers of previous winners and shortlisted authors including John Boyne, Siobhan Dowd and Sally Nicholls.

Greaves’ gothic tale for children aged 9-12 skilfully blends setting and myth to create a startlingly original ghost story. With dogs turning wild in the rolling mists of Dartmoor and a resurrected ancient curse, this book will have young readers quaking under the covers.
