CLPE has a brilliant poster information sheet,which you can find on CLPE and Dolphin Booksellers.
The Young Inferno is an amazing retelling of this classic by Dante. Full of action and loads of mental images, pacy and more than just engaging. The Furies are there and you will come face to face with them!
Satoshi Kitamura has captured all the action and more besides in his compelling and powerful illustrations. The teenage hoodie, as narrator of the tales into the nine circles of hell must be a hit with its audience of young people. Where else would you find Frankenstein as a bouncer.......
Frances Lincoln, the publishers, have shown yet again their skill at commissioning two of the best, in writing and illustrating, and bringing them together in a daring retelling of this story.
