9780007484690: Shadow (Collector's Edition)

Luxury hardback collector’s edition of a powerful, moving novel by the best-selling author of War Horse.

But when Aman and his mother finally decide to make a bid for freedom, the dog Aman has called Shadow will not leave their side.

Soon it becomes clear: the destinies of boy and dog are linked, and always will be…

“passionate and touching” – Julia Eccleshare
