What happens when innocence is confronted by monstrous evil? Nine year old Bruno knows nothing of the Final Solution and the Holocaust. He is oblivious to the appalling cruelties being inflicted on the people of Europe by his country. All he knows is that he has been moved from a comfortable home in Berlin to a house in a desolate area where there is nothing to do and no-one to play with. Until he meets Shmuel, a boy who lives a strange parallel existence on the other side of the adjoining wire fence and who, like the other people there, wears a uniform of striped pyjamas. Bruno's friendship with Shmuel will take him from innocence to revelation. And in exploring what he is unwittingly a part of, he will inevitably become subsumed by the terrible process.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Michael Maloney does more than read Bruno: he is Bruno, and effect is devastating." * Irish Times *
"Superbly read by John Maloney and is, quite simply, brilliant. [...] It is beautifully naive but with infinite depths [...] if you want to share something truly special with your child, this is it." * Daily Express *
"Chilling, and memorably read by Michael Maloney" * Choice magazine *
"Stays ahead of its readers before delivering its killer-punch final pages" * Independent *
"Simply written and highly memorable.There are no monstrosities on the page but the true horror is all the more potent for being implicit" * Ireland on Sunday *

“Perfect family listening for older children and adults”
