Written in the first person, Stonebird has more of a punch than it might have had. This story is a story of loss, and stories, mixed with a rubbing of fantasy.  It is a heart felt book – written with care and understanding. Liam and his family have moved to be closer to his grandma, who is suffering from dementia. It is a volume that deals with all that comes with finding someone who is with you, isn’t the person you knew before.  The other side of the coin is the gargoyle that changes everything and the stories that are as powerful as stories always are – it is an extraordinary book. There is magic in some books, and there is in this one.
