Philip Ardagh reviews Sparks by Ally Kenen

With her latest book, Sparks, longlisted for the Guardian children's fiction prize, Ally Kennen has abandoned a key element of her award-winning formula. Unlike previous titles Beast, Berserk and Bedlam, this offering doesn't begin with the letter B. It does, however, still contain all the ingredients of a mighty fun read. Sparks also has a subtitle, one which neatly sums up the premise of the entire book: "How to give Grandpa a Viking funeral". PHILIP ARDAGH
