After working as a bookseller and working in children's publishing, Sedgwick began writing seriously in His first book, Floodland , was published in to praise from critics, and it received the Branford-Boase award for the best first children's novel of that year. Floodland tells the story of Zoe, who lives on her own on an island that used to be part of England before global warming caused the seas to rise. Though a Horn Book reviewer commented that the book could have used further developed characters, the reviewer concluded, "this first novel is sufficiently taut, accessible, and swift moving to make it an effective cautionary tale.

Industry Reviews Humour, magic and the altogether unexpected are woven together engagingly to create a delightfully original adventure. Perfectly blending the scary with the silly, we follow Raven Boy and Elf Girl as they bicker their way through their adventure, dealing with everything from hungry trolls and terrifying beasts to an unexpectedly unscary witch along the way.
Pete Williamson's characterful black and white illustrations are a wonderful finishing touch. We meet all the characters you could want from a fairy tale: trolls, ogres, witches, grumpy inn-keepers and two resourceful and bickering heroes.

Published by Orion Children's Books. About this Item: Orion Children's Books. I had a good laugh in many places I don't mind keep reading about these two's adventures! And it's actually fascinating that we still don't know Raven Boy's and Elf Girl's real names. The only thing we know is that it's some hideous names according to them xDD Let's see when they will be revealed. View all 5 comments. Feb 06, Sania aghili rated it really liked it.

Raven boy with his tree climbing, amazing night vision and ability to talk to animals is a perfect friend for Elf Girl, I picked up 'Fright Forest' at the library whilst waiting for my children to choose some books. Raven boy with his tree climbing, amazing night vision and ability to talk to animals is a perfect friend for Elf Girl, who is tiny, elfin, can hide most spectacularly seriously, she'd ROCK at hide and seek and has a magic bow. Together they face ogres, trolls and witches as they travel through the fright forest, determined to find family and save their world.
Things get creepy and spooky Oh and let's not forget Rat! Rat is an awesome ally!
So glad this is the first of a series, I can't wait to read the rest of them. I know my children will love this series too. And I'm really looking forward to reading some to the children at school next term. Jun 10, A. Nixon rated it liked it Shelves: advanced-copy , , fantasy , young-adult.
This was a cute book. Good characters love Rat! The end came up on me a little quickly but it fit with the rest of the story, so that's good. There was a surprising amount of physical violence in this book, even if most of the time it was slapstick or written about in a way that toned it down. But where the bad guys were concerned when there was real danger , then it wasn't too scary, so that's good.

All together, a fun, quick rea This was a cute book. All together, a fun, quick read. Sep 17, Lorraine Orman rated it did not like it. A curiously lacklustre story by one of my favourite authors - sadly! But I am an adult reviewer, and young readers of primary-school age who like their spooky bits being only mildly spooky may enjoy it Sep 22, Zayneea rated it liked it Shelves: l-childrens-fiction , Nice introduction to Elf Girl and Raven Boy before they go off on some more adventures.
Not a lot happened in this story which is why I give it 3 stars rather than 4, but I am hopeful it will improve in the next story of the series. Jan 30, Andrew Ralton rated it liked it Shelves: children-s , read-in A few chuckles in it for my five year old, who seemed to enjoy it.
