Barkbelly, Paperback / softback Book

Barkbelly Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A fantastic epic and magical adventure story set in a beautifully realised world that's almost but not quite like our own.

Barkbelly is a wooden boy, brought up by loving human parents, whose life falls apart when he accidentally kills one of his playmates and has to go on the run.

His journey turns into a quest for his real home and his real mother, and takes in along the way the circus, fierce pirates and mysterious giant hedgehogs.

Full of poetry, magic, and dark twists of fate, Barkbelly discovers what can happen when your dreams come true, but not in the way you expect.
