The startlingly original new novel from Marcus Sedgewick is a book that explores no less than the riddle of the universe. The Ghosts of Heaven has been shortlisted for the Costa Children's Book Award and Orion are offering Reading Activists the chance to win a set of copies of The Ghosts of Heaven for their group and the opportunity to interview the author.
Marcus Sedgewick's first novel, Floodland, won the Branford Boase Award for the
Best Debut Children's Novel of 2000. Since then his books have been shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, the Blue Peter Book Award, the Costa Children's Book Award (2007), the Carnegie Medal and the Edgar Allan Poe Award. His previous novel, Midwinterblood, won the 2014 Michael L. Printz Award for Excellence in Young Adult Literature.
To win the prize, all you have to do is think of a question for the award winning author. Perhaps you'd like to know what his favourite childhood book was, or which items he would take to a desert island. Try to think of a question that's original and send your entries to us by Thursday 8 January.
