Hello everybody! Welcome to Tuesday, the best day for us book lovers. Tuesday is the day that books are released and we all get excited. Today a book has been released that I was lucky enough to read before and it was an amazing read. That novel is;
Noah Barleywater Runs Away by John Boyne! Yes, the same author who wrote The Boy in Striped Pyjamas. I hadn't read any of his previous works but now I want to because of this one book. What's it about though?
Eight-year-old Noah's problems seem easier to deal with if he doesn't think about them. So he runs away, taking an untrodden path through the forest.
Before long, he comes across a shop. But this is no ordinary shop; it's a toyshop, full of the most amazing toys, and brimming with the most wonderful magic. And here Noah meets a very unusual toymaker. The toymaker has a story to tell, and it's a story of adventure and wonder and broken promises. He takes Noah on a journey. A journey that will change his life.
Now if you like Disney, and I'm talking about from the 90's and back, the animated movies of course, then you'll love this book. It kind of ties in with a movie that we all grew up with and I LOVE! That's why I loved this book because it gave us a serious look at what happens after the fairytale.
So you all have to go and buy this book over at Barnes & Noble. Just click the link for Noah Barleywater Runs Away by John Boyne and be prepared to step into an epic world. Also, for every person who buys the book, a baby panda learns how to read. =D
