Product description

Alfie isn’t an old head on young shoulders. He really is a thousand years old. He’s lived, laughed and loved through centuries – and now he’s tired. Like, how do you keep life interesting when you’ve been around since Viking times? (Yawn.) Nobody knows how Alfie feels. Nobody believes his story. He’s tired of life. All he wants is to curl up and hide. But when everything he loves is burned up in a fire and the modern world comes crashing in, the world’s oldest boy has to make a new start…
