David Almond

Puppet

Illustrated by Lizzy Stewart

From Hans Christian Andersen Medal-winning author David Almond comes a heartwarming story that shows anything is possible with imagination and trust. What should a puppet master do when he’s old and alone, and all his puppets are gone? Sylvester makes one last puppet. But this one is different.

When the old man speaks to him, Puppet speaks back. And then he walks… While Sylvester shows Puppet the town, the playground and the wonders the world holds, Puppet in turn helps Sylvester to make a new friend, and share his puppet-making skills with the next generation in this wonder-filled story of creation and the circle of life. Illustrated with sequences of wordless spreads by award-winning artist Lizzy Stewart, this is a modern-day classic.
