    This is a special film tie-in edition of Patrick Ness' A Monster Calls; a novel that won both the Carnegie Medal and Greenaway Medal when it was published in 2012.

    Now adapted into a heartbreaking film (by director J.A. Bayona) starring Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver and Liam Neeson as the voice of the monster, the book discusses the difficult subject of terminal illness and coming to terms with loss. Based on an idea by Siobhan Dowd, Patrick Ness is the author of the novel and it's an unforgettable page-turner - just make sure you have some tissues on hand to dry your eyes.

    The story begins with the intriguing sentence: 'The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do...' and what follows is a compelling account of Conor's visions of this creature, who comes to be nothing quite like what he imagined...

    As his mum begins treatments, he starts to see another side of this ancient and wild monster.
