Brand New Boy

£10.99

Author: David Almond

A warm and thought-provoking tale from a master storyteller, winner of the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award and author of the Carnegie Medal-winning Skellig. “Mam, did you think George was,” I say, “a bit … weird?””Weird? Yes, I suppose so.

But you kids are all a bit weird if you ask me. And to tell the truth, it’d be weird if you weren’t.”When a new boy joins the class, everyone thinks he’s a bit strange, but he’s brilliant at football and loves crisps, and that’s all that matters to Dan and Maxie. However, the truth about George is stranger than anyone could have imagined …

and more sinister, too. Can his new pals help him to become truly free?
