Perijee & Me

Perijee & Me

Nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Award 2016

I pointed up. “That star is called Sirius. See?”
Perijee glowed, like a candle in a jar. He grew more fingers, tens of them, wrapping round my hands and wriggling.
“Home,” he said.

When 10-year-old Caitlin finds a tiny alien on the beach, she teaches him everything she knows. He’s like the brother she always wanted.

There’s only one problem:

Perijee won’t stop growing.

A stunning story about an unusual friendship, a heart-stopping adventure, and the power of kindness when faced with an alien invasion.

“Filled with wonder, joy, and adventure, Perijee and Me is middle-grade fiction at its best…A surreal and beautiful modern classic”   Booktrust

“Ross Montgomery’s imagination is wilder than most.”   Sunday Times

“It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and there is never a dull moment.”   Books for Keeps

“If Steven Spielberg and Roald Dahl had ever collaborated on a story, this would be it.”   Serendipity Reviews
