The Savage

The Savage by David Almond, Dave McKean (Illustrator)
A boy tells about a story he wrote when dealing with his father's death about a savage kid living in a ruined chapel in the woods--and the tale about the savage kid coming to life in the real world.

...tale is enhanced by McKean's grotesquely distorted figures, painted in bold black brush strokes on atmospheric shadings of blue and green. Recommend this one to fans of Almond, ambiguity, and the often blurred line between reality and illusion.
