Uaha
John Boyne, award-winning author of THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS, has written his second children's novel. NOAH BARLEYWATER RUNS AWAY is a fairytale for young readers, roughly a novella in length, filled with sweet magic and thoughtful, discreet advice. Strange and wondrous adventures and creatures lie within the pages of this delightful little book, which is also a sensible story centering on a serious subject: the mystery behind one troubled eight-year-old boy's sudden decision to run away from home.

Like most children who run away for a single afternoon, Noah has no solid plan in mind and is shockingly bereft of any reason. He's impulsive. He takes nothing with him. He's entirely certain of his own ability to get along fine. Of course, he tells no one what he's doing and is never coming back. But thankfully, there are good-natured folks out there willing to help souls like Noah. The ones he meets at the edge of the forest, in fact, make his experience an enchanted one.

As Noah journeys far from home, he gets about two towns away before becoming distracted by an odd-looking tree, which is actually a toyshop. Around this are curious animals and creatures, loitering, that begin speaking to him. This isn't surprising to Noah; he's well acquainted with these kinds of ideas and quite imaginative. This is a good distraction for an eight-year-old trying to get over the guilt of running away from his family.

Enraptured, Noah discovers within the tree many animated toys and magical objects, but the real prize is a grizzled old man who makes the toys and lives there. He actually seems to have lived there indefinitely, is very kindly, and has an interesting story to tell. And this stranger just happens to have the right bit of advice to help Noah out of his difficulties.

Setting off to travel the world, Noah instead ends up meeting new people and enjoys the company of a wise and understanding stranger who listens to him and thinks about his well-being. Noah's life's journey kicks off when the old man asks the obvious question: "Why would any boy want to run away? Your family must be horrible; terrible things must have happened, right?" Noah's lips are sealed. He's understandably sensitive about his reasons, and it's only natural for anyone to first demand the trust of a stranger before being expected to give up so much.

The book launches here into a series of charming and dream-like stories about this strange old man's worldly travels when he was just a boy about Noah's age. His fantastic account takes readers across the globe, through Europe, South America and North America as he explains that, just like Noah, he once had a father who loved him dearly, but his choice to run away came with consequences. This stranger's tale is fantastical but surprisingly personally relevant to Noah's own struggles and life difficulties.

NOAH BARLEYWATER RUNS AWAY is both a fantasy and a tale of caution, with its focus on loyalty and love. The cover illustrations are beautiful, but there are only a few pictures throughout the book. Children of the age to believe completely in magic will wholeheartedly enjoy this wholesome story, which (by the way) would also make an excellent choice for vocal storytelling or family enjoyment.

"Noah Barleywater Runs Away" is a charming and didactic tale. The author deftly captures the thought processes of the 8 year old main character, allowing even an adult reader to experience the adventures described through younger eyes. The book deals with difficult subject matter, facing fears, death and dying among others, and accomplishes the delivery of its core messages without beating the reader over the head, but allowing the reader to come to the "right" conclusion on their own. I think that this book is great for all ages, though I imagine it would be a wonderful book to read along with a child as it will surely prompt discussion and the examination of some tough topics.

I finished this book today. I absolutely loved it. Like Boyne's most famous book, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, this is written from a child's point of view, but is not necessarily a story you'd tell a child. It is a mix of harsh reality and amazing fantasy. I loved the book, not as a children's story, but for giving me the very rare opportunity to truly feel like an eight year old again.
I though Boyne did a fantastic job of setting out the fear Noah was living with, without hammering the point home.
Noah enters a world that's completely unreal, but all the better for it. My favourite image is of the door having to gallop up the stairs. I know that sounds mad, but somehow it felt sort of normal in this story.
This book is brilliant, but only read it if you're willing to bring your imagination with you on Noah's journey through the forest.
Read it like you read stories when you were eight, when anything was possible.

This book took a while to get going. The first few chapters were okay but it got much better as it went along. A very creative story incorporating some old familiar stories in imaginative ways.

This is a beautifully written book for both children and adults.

As expected from the author

This came up when I was searching for Oliver Jeffers. So I bought it thinking that's what it was. It's not a picture book but a chapter book. So we'll save it for when my son is older.
Wonderful story. Nice new take on a classic fairytale. Both children and adults may like not. do not expect a story like "The boy..."
