Paperboy is a journey through the salient moments of a young boy's life the fears, the trials, the tragedies and the small triumphs with each moment contemplated in terms of paper. Tissue paper that tears too readily, fly paper to which nasty things adhere, folded paper with which to create hope. Paperboy is written by Danny Parker, whose poetic prose for young readers has won him prestigious awards. Bethany Macdonald's robust expressionist collages both embody and illustrate the themes of this poignant story. AGES: 6 plus AUTHOR: Danny Parker is a picture-book author for whom the combination of family and the deeply personal process of writing are intertwined.
