My book review of 'Noah Barleywater Runs Away' by John Boyne
Eight-year-old Noah gets up very early one morning and runs away from home.
He enters a forest and meets some very odd people who do quite strange things.
Noah eventually meets a magical toymaker and starts to reveal what is troubling him.
The book is a funny, magical modern fairy tale, and while there is a little bit of sadness, it is a story of hope.
Written by the author of 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'.
