About this product
- DescriptionThe story of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is very difficult to describe. Usually we give some clues about the book on the cover, but in this case we think that would spoil the reading of the book. We think it is important that you start to read without kwing what it is about. If you do start to read this book, you will go on a journey with a nine-year-old boy called Bru. (Though this isn't a book for nine-year-olds.) And sooner or later you will arrive with Bru at a fence. We hope you never have to cross such a fence.
- Author BiographyJohn Boyne was born in Ireland in 1971. He is the author of ten novels for adults, five for young readers and a collection of short stories. Perhaps best known for his 2006 multi-award-winning book The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, John's other novels, notably The Absolutist and A History of Loneliness, have been widely praised and are international bestsellers. In 2015, John chaired the panel for the Giller Prize, Canada's most prestigious literary award. The Heart's Invisible Furies is his most ambitious novel yet.
