Barkbelly sets on a journey, doing everything to try to forget this unforgettable trauma. He recovers from a series of accidents and runs far enough to find out where wooden people like him live. He is on the trail for his family. Yet when he finds them he gets rejected. Nothing is going right for him, or is it? A cracking novel from the famous Cat Weatherill
I enjoyed the book because it kept my attention and I wanted to find out what his next adventure was. I also found the book interesting because of all the different places he went and people he met.
I think the book is suitable for children aged 8 and over.
