SHORTLISTED FOR THE SCOTTISH TEENAGE BOOK PRIZE Nothing much happens in Joe and Wade's dusty town. There's not much excitement in Joe and his brother's lives - just grinding poverty and the occasional run-in with the neighbours. The only highlight is the arrival of the carnival, with its mermaid, wolfman and baby dragon. This year, there's a new attraction - the Last Soldier of World War One. What message does he have for the boys...? Subtle and poetic drama set in 1920s Dustbowl America. From the award-winning author of Ostrich Boys. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+

Keith Gray was born in Grimsby. As a child Keith found reading a chore, but later found a talent in reading and writing and at 24 he had his first book published, Creepers, which was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award. Since then he has written numerous novels and has been on the judging panel for the Blue Peter Book Award, the Guardian Fiction Prize and the Bookstrust Teen Prize. He has also edited two collections of short stories for Random House. He currently lives just outside Edinburgh.
