Staying with her grandparents in the Scottish Highlands, Lara is fascinated by the rare white snowy owl her grandad has spotted flying nearby. And when she follows the beautiful bird into the woods, it leads her on a magical adventure…

Transported a century back in time, Lara befriends Amelia, who confides in Lara about her cruel cousin, who she’s sure is trying to hurt the baby owls nesting in the woods. When Lara discovers the hatchlings belong to her owl, Sky, she’s determined to help. But how can she protect them when she needs to return to her own time?

An enchanting and magical time-slip adventure from best-selling author Holly Webb.

Review by Stacey

Sky by Holly Webb is a beautiful and enchanting children’s middle-grade story about a young girl called Lara who is visiting her Grandparents in the Scottish Highlands over the Christmas period. Whilst there she encounters a Snowy Owl. The owl seems to want her to follow it and when she does Lara is transported back in time where she meets a young girl called Amelia who used to live in the ‘big house’, which in the modern day has become a hotel.

The story is just so lovely and warm. The book gives off a pleasant, relaxing vibe and I loved the time slip tale and how two children from completely different periods in time could be so alike. Their friendship was charming to witness.

I also loved how the author broached the subject of Lara’s mother recovering from cancer, how it affected the family over the last year, and how much everyone worried about her.

Overall, Sky was such a sweet, cosy read. It is the perfect story for the wintertime and best read whilst sipping on a cup of hot chocolate.
