Description - The 1,000-year-old Boy by Ross Welford
The astonishing, beautiful new story for all readers of 10 and over from the bestselling and Costa-shortlisted author of TIME TRAVELLING WITH A HAMSTER.
'A wonderful story' Kiran Millwood Hargrave There are stories about people who want to live forever.
This is not one of those stories.
This is a story about someone who wants to stop...
Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy - except he's 1,000 years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England.
Obviously no one believes him.
So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance, and a different way to live...
... which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.
