Book Blitz & Giveaway for The Hideaway by Pam Smy


The Hideaway combines gripping text and stunning illustration to tell the Story of Billy McKenna, a boy who runs away from a difficult situation at home and takes refuge in an overgrown graveyard to deal with his mixed emotions. There, Billy meets an elderly man who tends the graves in preparation for All Souls' Eve, and ultimately witnesses the magical events that come to pass on that spooky night. 

Interwoven in Billy's supernatural story is the all-too-realistic tale of his mother's situation at home and the police search for Billy. With themes of family and childhood, separation and reunion, domestic violence and doing the right thing, this is an important and beautiful Book for middle graders through adults. 

Billy's story is illustrated throughout with tonal and textured black and white drawings, until the events on All Souls' Eve, when the text gives way to a series of double page images of the supernatural happening. 

The Hideaway is a compelling, exciting and emotional story that will stay with you long after you turn the final page. 

Pam Smy studied illustration at Cambridge School of Art, where she now lectures part-time. Pam has illustrated books by Conan Doyle, Julia Donaldson, and Kathy Henderson, among others. Her first novel, Thornhill, was a critical and commercial success, shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize, the UKLA Book Awards, the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2018, and winning the 2018 British Book Design & Production Award for Graphic Novels.
She lives in Cambridge, UK.
