Striking, surreal illustrations and a haunting, evocative short film tell a mysterious tale of a threatened natural

world - and a hopeful new start. 

Children will be writing a short character and setting description to show atmospheric changes. 

Whole Class Reading

If you start to read this book, you will go on a journey with a nine-year-old boy named Bruno. Sooner or later you will arrive with Bruno at a fence.
Fences like this exist all over the world. We hope you never have to encounter one.
