The Boy at the Back of the Class won both the 2019 Blue Peter Book Award and Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Told with heart, humour and hope, it portrays the refugee crisis through the eyes of a child in a way that is accessible, warm and funny. It’s a story about friendship and how naturally children celebrate, rather than fear, all our differences.
