Reviews

A true story woven into a wonderful piece of fiction . . . This is a story of perseverance and endurance made all the more moving as it is based on truth * The Bookseller *
Fabio has a poetic turn of phrase, but lets events speak for themselves. The result is a moving and eye-opening chronicle of hardships no child should have to endure, mitigated by intermittent kindness * The Sunday Times *
Geda's voice combines the plucky survivor's determination of his charge with moments of pathos-soaked poignancy and others of joyful laughter . . . This little gem, beautifully and unobtrusively translated, will raise tears of sorrow and of joy * Independent *
Based on a true story, this extraordinary tale of a young boy's search for a home will be published simultaneously in adult and YA editions * The Bookseller *
This powerful true-life tale ... is sure to appeal to fans of historical fiction. * Carousel 'Pick of the Year' *
