Hugely entertaining, fast-paced contemporary adventure, featuring demons from Japanese folklore Miku Takeshita and her family have moved from Japan to live in the UK, but unfortunately the family's enemy demons have followed them… Miku knows she's in trouble when her new supply teacher turns out to be a Nukekubi - a bloodthirsty demon who can turn into a flying head and whose favourite snack is children. That night, in a raging snowstorm, Miku's little brother Kazu is kidnapped by the demons, and then it's up to Miku and her friend Cait to get him back.

The girls break into their snow-locked school, confronting the dragon-like Woman of the Wet, and outwitting the faceless Nopera-bo. At last they come face to face with the Nukekubi itself - but will they be in time to save Kazu?

About the Author Cristy Burne has joint New Zealand and Australian citizenship, has travelled widely and lived for several years in Japan as a teacher and editor. It was during this time that she became fascinated with Japanese folklore and the supernatural yokai - demons - which are very much a part of Japanese culture, but little known outside Japan. Cristy has spent most of her career as a science writer, and currently works for a computing network designed to solve global problems.

Cristy and her husband live in Perth, Western Australia. This year the inaugural 'Diverse Voices' award was announced. The award was a joint initiative by Frances Lincoln and Seven Stories, the Centre for the Children's Book, and was aimed at recognising a manuscript that 'celebrates diversity in its widest possible sense'. Winner Christy Burne's Takeshita Demons does this admirably.

Takeshita Demons: Monster Matsuri Chapter 1

It is a pacy horror adventure in which a Japanese girl brings yokai evil spirits into an English school, and battles them with her friend in order to save her baby brother. Things get chilling when a supply teacher turns out to be a nukekubi a child-eating spirit , whose head flies off.

Fortunately, there are protective spirits, too. I read Takeshita Demons in a few gulps. My first impressions were: "wow, this is pretty damn good" and then "holy smokes, this is actually quite scary" and then "I love kick ass girls!
