Product description

Winner of the 2012 Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, this is a stunning and magical story of a summer of friendship which also explore the plight of refugees.

From the award-winning author of Millions comes a story of friendship in the midst of adversity. Winner of the 2012 Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, this magical and poignant book is enriched by stunning and atmospheric Polaroid photos.

Two refugee brothers from Mongolia are determined to fit in with their Liverpool schoolmates, but bring so much of Mongolia to Bootle that their new friend and guide, Julie, is hard-pressed to know truth from fantasy. Told with the humour, warmth and brilliance of detail which characterizes Frank Cottrell Boyce’s writing, readers will be transported from the streets of Liverpool to the steppe of Mongolia.
