The Billow Maiden by James Dixon

Illustrated by Tamsin Rosewell

A beautiful weaving of ancient Norse mythology with a moving, modern-day tale of family, friendship and healing, set against an evocative, remote Scottish island landscape that will well and truly sweep you away.

From a remarkable new talent and winner of the inaugural Guppy Books MG open submission competition, James Dixon's debut novel is a forceful storm of a book. Deeply heartfelt and blazingly beautiful, The Billow Maiden flickers with a rich and immersive magic, reminiscent of the likes of Catherine Doyle and Kiran Millwood-Hargrave. But Dixon's tender exploration of the healing, transformative power and purpose of the natural world is perhaps the greatest magic of all.

Tamsin Rosewell's stunning artwork just brings it to a whole other level. This is the kind of book that you will want to have on your shelves.

The Billow Maiden, published by Guppy Books, is out 7th July 2022. Preorder here!
