“An Australian graphic novel in the vein of Brian Selznick’s The Invention of Hugo Cabret… Though less nuanced than Selznick’s work, this meandering adventure, with its thought-bubbled, pencil-shaded illustrations, has memorable charm.” Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian

“Curl up in your favourite reading spot and let yourself be whisked away by a master storyteller. You’ll have a wonderful adventure and perhaps you’ll be inspired – to fight for your true freedom like Mara, to face your fears like Jamie, to find out who you really want to be – and of course to plan your own adventures…” LIZ CROSS, Publisher
Sunday Times Children’s Book of the Week 4 March 2018
A landmark new novel from the ‘storymaker’, Michael Morpurgo, set in the unique landscape of the Camargue in the South of France during WW2. There, a young autistic boy lives on his parents’ farm among the salt flats, and the flamingos that live there. There are lots of things he doesn’t understand: but he does know how to heal animals. He loves routine, and music too: and every week he goes to market with his mother, to ride his special horse on the town carousel.
“Eggers’ middle-grade debut is… a heart-gladdening work of allegorical genius.” Kitty Empire, The Observer
