A stunning magical story of a summer of friendship with darker undertones of the plight of refugees.

Two refugee brothers from Mongolia are determined to fit in with their Liverpool schoolmates, but bring so much of Mongolia to Bootle that their new friend and guide, Julie, is hard-pressed to know truth from fantasy as she recollects a wonderful friendship that was abruptly ended when Chingis and his family were forced to return to Mongolia. Told with the humour, warmth and brilliance of detail which characterizes Frank Cottrell Boyce's writing, this magical and compelling story is enriched by stunning and atmospheric Polaroid photos.

'I can't imagine a single child or adult to whom I wouldn't recommend it.' – Jill Murphy in The Bookbag

'It is a warming and sweet read to brighten your day.' – Silver Roo in The Guardian

'This is, without a doubt, one of the best little books I’ve ever read. A brilliant melding of text and image, it’s a wonderful example of what can happen when an author goes for something entirely new.'– Elizabeth Bird in School Library Journal
