An unforgettable adventure about courage and family that will plunge you back into the Stone Age…. And then lead you back home.
When Charlie’s baby brother is born with a problem in his heart, Charlie RUNS. Runs to the forest, with its sheltering leaves that shut out trouble and hurt and fear.
But in the forest is a boy, lying in the river, dressed in deerskins, only just breathing. And when Charlie goes for help, the forest has changed. Now it’s something vast and strange. Something ancient. Something WILD.
And Charlie is a long, long way from home.
Fans of Piers Torday and Sophie Anderson will delight in this thrilling, wise and heartfelt adventure as Charlie and the Stone Age boy set out together to find what they have lost – their courage, their hope, the family and their way home.
