Abstract

This essay addresses David Almond's Skellig as a story that foregrounds the resources children need to remain resilient in the face of the uncertainties of contemporary risk society. Focussing on knowledge resources, it attends to the socio-cultural and intellectual conditions embedded in the narrative and expressed through its magic realist gestures.
