Charmian Hussey - Howl on the Wind - Book Post - Illustrated By Rose Forshall

                                              HOWL ON THE WIND


The long-awaited second novel by Charmian Hussey, bestselling author of ‘The Valley of Secrets’ tells the dramatic story of Lizzie’s incredible courage and perseverance against all the odds, set on the rugged north Cornish coast.

“I’ve seen it with my own eyes,” he cried out in a shrill voice, his face contorted, his eyes shining in the light from the glowing fire.
“’Tis a poor, tormented creature … huge and hairy … a savage beast …”
From somewhere at the back of the room, a horrible howling noise rose up.
“Howooooo … Hoooooooo … Howooooo … Hooooooo …”
… with stunning illustrations by Rose Forshall

Howl On The Wind follows the fortunes of wheelchair-bound Lizzie, who visits 
Cornwall on a quest to find answers about her long-dead
father.

Lizzie is a star sprinter who had high hopes to compete in the 2012 Olympics until an accident leaves her without the use of her legs. When she and her brother Tom uncover some previously unknown facts about their long-dead father they set out to find the truth. Their travels take them to a small island off the North Cornwall coast, home to the remains of a 13th century castle once occupied by an old Cornish family, the Tregarrows

At Atlantic Press, we create works of graphic literature which respect the illustrator’s personal voice: their ideas, their pictures and their words. We call this ‘authorial illustration’.
Our rare and collectable books present imaginative ideas or tell intriguing stories, and are often illustrated for an adult audience, or designed to appeal to an audience of all ages. We are an independent press, publishing limited edition first books by authorial illustrators. Associated with the Masters course in authorial illustration at University College Falmouth incorporating Dartington College of Arts, Atlantic Press seeks to promote new authorial illustration talent, as well as recognising existing practitioners in the illustration field. We work closely with talented illustrators, allowing them authorial freedom; our role being to support their personal imaginative vision. Atlantic Press is run by illustrators and educators and we aim to publish innovative picture books which display the highest literary and visual standards. In so doing, we want to encourage illustration to be a developing practice and not just a repetitive commodity. We want illustrators to be enterprising, and most importantly, we want to contribute to a cultural shift whereby intelligent illustrated books become popular with the general book-buying public.
