'Some things are just sitting there, minding their own business, waiting to be discovered.
Like America. And other things are probably better off left alone'Nine-year-old Bruno has a lot of things on his mind.
Who is the 'Fury'? Why did he make them leave their nice home in Berlin to go to 'Out-With' ? And who are all the sad people in striped pyjamas on the other side of the fence?
The grown-ups won't explain so Bruno decides there is only one thing for it - he will have to explore this place alone.
What he discovers is a new friend. A boy with the very same birthday. A boy in striped pyjamas. But why can't they ever play together?BACKSTORY: Read an interview with the author JOHN BOYNE and learn all about the Second World War in Germany.
