Shadow

Sheltering from the horrors of the Afghan war, a boy, Aman, finds a dog outside the cave where he lives with his mother. At first, he is repulsed. It is not normal for people to keep dogs as pets in his part of the world. But when Aman and his mother flee in a desperate bid for freedom, the dog he has called Shadow will not leave their side. For the destinies of boy and dog are linked, and always will be… Told by Michael Morpurgo and illustrated by master artist Christian Birmingham, this is the stunning, moving tale of the bravest dog in all the world!

“Passionate and touching.” Julia Eccleshare

“As ever, Morpurgo’s warmth and humanity suffuse a story of courage, love and hope.” Amanda Craig
