The 1,000-year-old Boy
Ross Welford


Publisher: HarperCollinsChildren'sBooks
ISBN: 9780008256944
Published: 20180111
Price: £6.99


Synopsis:
The astonishing, beautiful new story for all readers of 10 and over from the bestselling and Costa-shortlisted author of TIME TRAVELLING WITH A HAMSTER.

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.
