Absolutely the story of our time - an amazing and powerful picture book. Winner of several international awards and available for the first time in English.
'One of my ten favourite picture books of all time.' - John Marsden

In the morning the people of the island found a man sitting on the shore, there where fate and the ocean currents had set him and his frail raft in the night. When he saw them coming towards him, he rose to his feet.

He was not like them.

This internationally acclaimed, award-winning picture book is astonishing, powerful and timely.
