A BIG story about a small boy who sees the world a little differently
Nine-year-old Milo Moon has retinitis pigmentosa: his eyes are slowly failing and he will eventually go blind. But for now he sees the world through a pin hole and notices things other people don’t. When Milo’s beloved gran succumbs to dementia and moves into a nursing home, Milo soon realises there’s something very wrong at the home. The grown-ups won’t listen to him so with just Tripi, the nursing home’s cook, and Hamlet, his pet pig, to help, Milo sets out on a mission to expose the nursing home and the sinister Nurse Thornhill.
Insightful, wise and surprising, What Milo Saw is a novel filled with big ideas, simple truths and an emotional message that will resonate with everyone. Milo sees the world in a very special way and it will be impossible for you not to fall in love with him, savour every moment you spend with him and then share his story with everyone you know.
I won a review copy from The little book café on twitter so thank you very much!
This is a very different insightful read, it reminded me of wonder as it tells a story from the mind of a young boy .A boy who sees the world differently .
It is honest and heartwarming .
The cover is really intriguing and eye catching .
You meet a variety of charactars in this book and they all have a story to tell of loss love and heartache.
We get to see first hand the inappropriate way eldery people are treated in a nursing home which is heart-breaking but do not fear as Milo is on the case!!
Very cleverly written .
