£5.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

From the former Children's Laureate and author of international phenomenon War Horse comes a moving tale celebrating the bright light of humanity surviving even in the darkest conflict.



Travelling to the West Bank to witness first hand what life is like for Palestinians and Jews living in the shadow of a dividing wall, journalist Max strikes up a friendship with an enigmatic Palestinian boy, Said. Together the two sit under an ancient olive tree while Said makes another of his kites. When Said takes Max home, the reporter learns of the terrible events in the family's past and begins to understand why Said does not speak. Told from both Max's and Said's points of view, Morpurgo has created a beautiful tale of tragedy and hope with an ending that rings with joy.
