About the Author

Sally Christie's first job, nearly thirty years ago, was with a publisher of children's books. While she was there, she had a go at writing a story herself and (cunningly calling herself Syd Carter) sent it to an editor in her own office. It was accepted. She has grown up a lot since Syd: When, more recently, she completed a breathtaking story called The Icarus Show, she felt able to send it to David Fickling Books under her own name.

Reviews

Advance Praise for The Icarus Show

"An absolutely beautifully crafted read, with unforgettable characters who will truly get under your skin." -- The Bookseller (UK), Children's Book of the Month pick

"An absorbing story... It is possible for even children in loving families to find themselves alone, isolated by problems that seem insurmountable. The Icarus Show is a book that ably dramatizes this conundrum, and does so with lightness and grace." -- Marcus Sedgwick, Printz Award-winning author, The Guardian (UK)

"[Sally Christie] writes beautifully." -- The Independent (UK)

"A life-affirming look at friendship, with a little magic in it too." --Absolutely Education Magazine (UK)
