Synopsis

'Some things are just sitting there, minding their own business, waiting to be discovered. Like America. And other things are probably better off left alone'

Nine-year-old Bruno has a lot of things on his mind. Who is the 'Fury'? Why did he make them leave their nice home in Berlin to go to 'Out-With' ? And who are all the sad people in striped pyjamas on the other side of the fence? The grown-ups won't explain so Bruno decides there is only one thing for it - he will have to explore this place alone. What he discovers is a new friend. A boy with the very same birthday. A boy in striped pyjamas. But why can't they ever play together?

BACKSTORY: Read an interview with the author JOHN BOYNE and learn all about the Second World War in Germany.

    Everyone should read this.

    I read this book a while ago and found it a book that you just could not put down. excellent story, and more so for me as I have been to Poland and saw the camps for myself. After I had read it, my grandson asked to read it, and now his sister has also read it,they were both about 11 years old, at the time, well worth parents getting this book for their children especially with how the world is at the moment. It is still happening through out the world, when we all were sure that it could not happen again. This is a book which should be read in all schools.

    The Boy in the striped pyjamas

    Fantastic. The innoncence of a child who is able to see someone as a person to relate to, not somebody with a label and therefore does not judge. Hopefully we can all learn to treat each other with kindness and care.

    The boy in the striped pyjamas

    Brilliant and evocative, it's unbelievable that these atrocities happened in plain view of others. Such a beautifully written book.

    An amazing portrayal of the naivety of a young boy living in the shadow of the Third Reich. John Boyne shows us the horrors of a concentration camp in a very simple, yet effective, manner. Sad but beautifully done.
