Enhance your purchase
Dubosarsky's classic award-winning novel about 12-year-old Samuel, his half-sister Theodora, and their eccentric energetic Jewish family living in contemporary Sydney, Australia. A funny and very touching story about children caught between the past and the future. Read and loved in homes and classrooms all over Australia, and republished in Germany in 2013. Winner of the NSW Premier's award for children's books, Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Honour book and shortlisted for the Adelaide Festival awards for Literature. “Warm and deeply endearing; I love this remarkable, life-enhancing book.” Sydney Morning Herald “The brilliant portrayal of wistful 12-year-old Samuel and his obsessive sister Theodora just take one’s breath away.” Canberra Times “The story sent tears down my cheeks. If goodness is not readily available, but an achievement, so too is writing like this. In my view it is here to be enjoyed by every adult from the ages of ten to a hundred and ten.” Australian Book Review
