Options Available (Please Select)

'Some things are just sitting there, minding their own business, waiting to be discovered. Like America. And other things are probably better off left alone'

Nine-year-old Bruno has a lot of things on his mind . . .

Who is the 'Fury'?

Why did he make them leave their nice home in Berlin to go to 'Out-With'?

And who are all the sad people in striped pyjamas on the other side of the fence?

The grown-ups won't explain so Bruno decides there is only one thing for it - he will have to explore this place alone.

What he discovers is a new friend. A boy with the very same birthday. A boy in striped pyjamas. But why can't they ever play together?

External Reviews

". . . the novel is well written, compelling and ultimately shocking." - Review.

"An extraordinary tale of friendship and the horrors of war seen thorugh the eyes of two young boys, it's stirring stuff. Raw literary talent at its best." - Irish Independent

"Quite impossible to put down, this is the rare kind of book that doesn't leave your head for days. Word of mouth should be strong and this has the potential to cross over to an adult audience. A unique and captivating novel, which I believe deserves huge success." -
Becky Stadwick, The Bookseller.
