A proper adventure story for all curious middle graders… heartily recommended.
He wasn’t an alien, I was sure of that. It was more like he’d walked in through an ancient door from the past … except he was here, in my bedroom and his misty forest was somewhere real on Planet Earth.
Twelve-year-old Kofi first spots the prehistoric human on a supermarket roundabout. He is small and dark and curled into a tight ball. His name is Rorty Thrutch and he has zero memory of how he ended up in the unexceptional village of Bradborough, or why he’s being hunted…
Kofi soon finds out that Rorty can do amazing things. He can copy, paste and delete objects, using only the power of his mind. This is the discovery of the century and mad, greedy scientists will stop at nothing to track him down.
