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 customary for people to keep dogs as pets in his part of the world. But when Aman and his mother finally flee in a 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… Illustrated by Christian Birmingham, this highly topical and moving novel from Michael Morpurgo takes readers into one of the world’s most notorious and impenetrable conflicts. Exploring the subject of war and refugees from a child’s-eye view, it examines the plight of those left living in the inhumane conditions of the Afghan cave region, escaping the persecution of the Taliban.
“As ever, Morpurgo’s warmth and humanity suffuse a story of courage, love and hope.” Amanda Craig, The Times
“Passionate and touching.” Julia Eccleshare
