The 1,000 Year Old Boy
There are stories about people who want to live forever. This is not one of those stories. This is a story about someone who wants to stop.
Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy except he's 1,000 years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England. Obviously, no one believes him. So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance, and a different way to live which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.
The astonishing, beautiful new story for all readers of 10 years and over from the bestselling and Costa-shortlisted author of Time Travelling with a Hamster.
