About the Book

The Book of Boy

Boy has always been relegated to the outskirts of his small village. With a large hump on his back, a mysterious past and a tendency to talk to animals, he is often mocked by others in his town --- until the arrival of a shadowy pilgrim named Secondus. Impressed with Boy’s climbing and jumping abilities, Secondus engages Boy as his servant, pulling him into an action-packed and suspensful expedition across Europe to gather the seven precious relics of Saint Peter.

Boy quickly realizes this journey is not an innocent one. They are stealing the relics and accumulating dangerous enemies in the process. But Boy is determined to see this pilgrimage through until the end --- for what if St. Peter can make Boy’s hump go away? A surprising and unforgettable tale for readers of all ages.
