Books by Kenneth McLeish
Children of the Gods
by Kenneth McLeish
It’s a beautiful book, illustrated with line drawings by Elisabeth Frink. I love the way Kenneth McLeish doesn’t sweeten the pill. A lot of these stories are quite gruesome and unpleasant, involving humans – and indeed immortals – coming to grisly ends. Of course, all that dark stuff is absolutely gripping and I loved it, as I think most children do.
