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.
