Eight-year-old Noah's problems seem easier to deal with if he doesn't think about them. So he runs away, taking an untrodden path through the forest. Before long, he comes across a shop. But this is no ordinary shop: it's a toyshop, full of the most amazing toys, and brimming with the most wonderful magic. And here Noah meets a very unusual toymaker. The toymaker has a story to tell, and it's a story of adventure and wonder and broken promises. He takes Noah on a journey. A journey that will change his life.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

In this charming and cleverly plotted story that tiptoes with humor and compassion, two characters teach each other how to grieve, how to forgive, and how, eventually, to remember what has been lost. The New York Times Book Review
A celebration of the consolations of storytelling. Spellbinding stuff. The Financial Times
Highly amusing, refreshingly original and extremely moving... written with such an assurance and lightness of touch... infused with such truths as to leave one with very real tears in the eyes. The Guardian (UK)
Timeless and imaginative. I don't know how Boyne does it but his story is incredibly resonant. The Irish Times
