By Boyne, John
'Something's are just sitting there, minding their own business and waiting to be discovered. Like America. And other things are probably better off left alone' Nine-years-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?

A boy in striped pyjamas. But why can't they ever play together?Read more
