A Different Land

Paul Jennings, illus by Geoff Kelly

Old Barn Books

Following the success of the Carnegie Medal-longlisted A Different Boy, Paul brings to a close the trilogy which started with A Different Dog.

Paul continues to explore themes of family and displacement as our narrator seeks to find a home - in a reflection on the author's experiences as a 'ten pound Pom' child emigre to Australia.

Told with Paul Jennings' empathy and gentle humour - and there is bound to be a twist in the tale! Once again, his superb writing is skilfully illustrated in woodcut style by Geoff Kelly. Perfect for reluctant readers in upper primary and lower secondary - and for everyone who loves a great story.
