I only got one book this week - but it looks fab - found it on in their signed editions section

Noah Barleywater runs away by John Boyne

In Noah Barleywater Runs Away, bestselling author John Boyne explores the world of childhood and the adventures that we can all have there. Noah is running away from his problems, or at least that's what he thinks, the day he takes the untrodden path through the forest. When he comes across a very unusual toyshop and meets the even more unusual toymaker he's not sure what to expect. But the toymaker has a story to tell, a story full of adventure, and wonder and broken promises. And Noah travels with him on a journey that will change his life for ever. A thought-provoking fable for our modern world from the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

I am in two minds about whether I will like this book - the boy in the striped pyjamas annoys me quite a bit despite the that I do like what Boyne tried to do with it. I have heard fab things about it though


Great book. Look forward to your review :D

Sometimes getting only one book is a good thing; gives you a chance to catch up a little! I only got a few this week, and I'm so happy about that.
