ACHUKA Book of the Day 9 Jul 2020
Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month July 2020
When Charlie’s longed-for brother is born with a serious heart condition, his world is turned upside down. Upset and afraid, Charlie flees the hospital and makes for the ancient forest on the edge of town. There Charlie finds a boy floating face-down in the stream, injured, but alive. But when Charlie sets off back to the hospital to fetch help, it seems the forest has changed.
What follows is a wild, big-hearted timeslip adventure as Charlie and the Stone Age boy set out together to find what they have lost – their courage, their hope, their family and their way home.
Fans of Piers Torday and Stig of the Dump will love this wild and heartfelt debut adventure.
