Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Something is scratching around in the attic above Alison's room. Yet the only thing up there is a stack of grimy old plates. Alison and her stepbrother, Roger, discover that the flowery patterns on the plates, when traced onto paper, can be fitted together to create owls--owls that disappear when no one is watching. With each vanished owl, strange events begin to happen . As the kids uncover the mystery of the owl service, they become trapped within a local legend, playing out roles in a tragic love story that has repeated itself for generations . . . and has always ended in disaster.

Synopsis:

The Carnegie Medal-winning classic about a most unusual dinner service and the ancient, deadly magic it holds.

This is a pretty odd little book; I really enjoyed it, but the very end left me a little confused. It would probably appeal to those who liked The Dark Is Rising, since it taps into a lot of Welsh mythology and such, but it's a much more subtle and psychological story. I'm going to have to check out Alan Garner's other books.
