  • Intensely moving as well as enchanting in its evocation of childhood, the heartlessness of youth and parental grief as children grow older

    Daily Telegraph
  • One of the classic children's stories of all time

    Daily Mail
  • Clap your hands for the boy who refused to grow up and whom the world will never allow to grow old

  • So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well, put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and, without any prompting, spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now, if you knew my 13-year-old daughter, you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts, blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school, so all hail Vintage Classics!
