Edgar and Adolf by Phil Earle & Michael Wagg

Edgar and Adolf is a beautiful story published by Oxford University Press in association with Barrington Stoke. It is the perfect combination of a rich, heartfelt story with accessible vocabulary, spacing and font. This story bridges the gap between middle grade and young adult wonderfully and  I can already think of so many children with whom I want to share it.

Edgar and Adolf is a story of the past and the present. Told through the reminiscing of an elderly gentleman, newspaper clippings and letters, it provides insight into a time gone by and the value of true friendship.

The story opens in Scotland in 1983. Adi is searching for Edgar who knew his grandfather in Germany long ago. He is on a very important mission and will do anything to complete it. Readers are privileged to join with him on a journey of memories, football and friendship.

Thank you to Oxford University Press for this touching story.
