Amazon Editorial Review:

Five-year-old Jimmy Rova is the unwanted child of a mother who rejects him, and whose other children bully him. The one thing he can call his own is a pair of shoes, a present from the only person he feels has ever loved him. When they are cruelly taken away, Jimmy spirals down into a state of loneliness and terrible loss from which there seems no recovery. This triumphant story of a boy's struggle with early trauma and his remarkable journey into adulthood is based on William Horwood's own remarkable childhood in south-east England after the Second World War. Using all the skills that went into the creation of his modern classics, Horwood has written an inspiring story of a journey from a past too painful to imagine to the future every child deserves.

Thanks so much for fulfilling this wish in the tag game (and for starting the game also). Very clever idea to put the bcid in the address!

I recommend this book, as a very well written piece of modern England. The author tells of his neglectful childhood where neither father, mother nor school offer the support he needs. But caring adults do appear and fill some of the roles in his life which allows him to grow.

The book is semi biographical, by the man who wrote wind in the willows. When he describes the years he spent in the dales, sea, and river you can see how he used this knowledge to write his stories.

A reminder that traditional education is not the only way...
