Product description

Grandpa is dying. He can barely move his hands any more but, stubborn as ever, refuses to stay in hospital. He’s determined to finish his last painting, River Boy, before he goes.

At first Jess can’t understand his refusal to let go, but then she too becomes involved in the mysterious painting. And when she meets the river boy himself, she finds she is suddenly caught up in a challenge of her own that she must complete – before it’s too late . . . This amazing book by critically-acclaimed author, Tim Bowler, was the winner of the prestigious Carnegie Medal and is being published in this stunning edition for a new generation of readers.

With a stunning new cover by Tom Clohosy Cole and an introduction by award-winning writer, David Almond, this new edition will appeal to a whole new generation of readers.
