A beautiful little book with a lot to say,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brock (Paperback)
I bought 'Brock' for nephew (he's a McGowan fan) and when it arrived, it looked so very pleasing with its attractive cover and illustrated page design, I couldn't resist a sneaky peek. Well, the book might appear pretty, but it certainly doesn't gloss over its subject matter: the story of Nicky's fight to save local badgers from destruction deals with big themes. Injustice and violence, love and understanding; it's rare a book is so sparely written, yet covers such broad emotional terrain.
It's published under a 'Teen' label, but it's a story that will touch readers of all ages, and would make a great gift.
