A truly special and unique historical adventure -

perfect for readers aged 9+!

' ... an extraordinary mixture of the historical and fantastic.'


'This is a fascinating tale which brings a quest, scuffles,

dastardly thieves, and twists galore together in a story which

brings alive the culture and people of the time.' HISTORICAL


The year is 1350. Boy, a hunchbacked, sweet-natured goatherd,

is content in his quiet country life. But when a shadowy pilgrim

with a dangerous past arrives on the farm, his world is turned upside


Secundus is a man on a mission, and upon first sight of Boy, enlists

him as his servant, ripping him away from tranquility and

plunging them both into a perilous medieval treasure hunt ... but

there is more to the pilgrim's quest than meets the eye.

An unforgettable middle-grade historical adventure, The

Book of Boy already feels like a classic.

Two unpredictable and moving twists elevate this adventure

into something truly special and unique.

Themes of loyalty, courage and self-acceptance prevail

in a story that's warm, wise and touchingly funny.

Catherine Gilbert Murdock is an acclaimed author in the

US, but this will represent her UK debut.
