Skellig is told by a first-person narrator, a 10-to-11-year-old boy named Michael.
The story is told in the past tense.
Skellig is the name of a creature a young boy named Michael discovers in the garage of his new home on Falconer Road. The rocky and mysterious Skellig Islands off the coast of Ireland are home to an ancient monastery and thousands of puffins and gannets, which are local migratory birds. Skellig, the title character, is mysterious, birdlike, and angelic, which the association with the Skellig Islands suggests.
