Product description

A truly special and unique historical adventure - perfect for readers aged 9+! ’ ... an extraordinary mixture of the historical and fantastic.’ THE GUARDIAN

‘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.’ HISTORICALNOVEL SOCIETY

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 down.

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.
