Nine-year-old Milo Moon has retinitis pigmentosa: his eyes are slowly failing, and he will eventually go blind. But for now he sees the world through a pin hole and notices things other people don't.

When Milo's beloved gran succumbs to dementia and moves into a nursing home, Milo soon realises there's something wrong at the home. So with just Tripi, the nursing home's cook, and Hamlet, his pet pig, to help, Milo sets out on a mission to expose the nursing home...

MEDIA REVIEWS
I defy you not to fall in love with Milo . . . What Milo Saw is a reminder to us all that in life, perspective is everything. A modern-day fable and undoubtedly a future classic * Clare Mackintosh, author of Sunday Times Top Ten bestselling I Let You Go *
From the first page, we were hooked . . . If you loved The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, this is for you . . . Brilliant! ***** * Heat *
A poignant and very clever read - you'll fall in love with Milo! * Company *
Not dissimilar to Christopher in Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. If you enjoyed that book you'll love this one . . . A truly heartwarming story of family, love and loyalty . . . It might be wise to have a box of tissues at the ready . . . Beautifully written and complete with a powerful message, What Milo Saw will make you think, and then pick up the phone to call your mum. * Daily Express *
A life-affirming read . . . Warm, wise and insightful * Good Housekeeping *
Sharp, funny and hugely moving, this is a must read * Fabulous *
It is impossible not to fall in love with nine-year-old Milo in this touching novel * Stylist *
The characterisation and dialogue make it easy to feel empathy for the family and readers will cheer Milo on to achieve his goal * Sun *
[An] understated and likeable tale that just might restore your faith in human nature * Bella *
Deals with serious themes including family life and the treatment of the elderly in society. The novel addresses these issues with sensitivity and good humour reminiscent of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time * Irish Tatler *
A challenging and moving story about the power of love between generations * Image magazine *
Absolutely delightful . . . Everyone should read this book; it holds laughter and tears, but above all, it has something similar to a beating heart. This is not a book to be missed! * Novelicious *
A carefully constructed comment on how appearances can be deceiving . . . A heart-warming read showing children sometimes know better than grown-ups * Press Association *
It is impossible to resist falling in love with young Milo . . . A spectacular story that I will remember for a long time . . . I really do recommend it * ireadnovels blog *

“What I didn't like.....”

Apparently, according to the book's blurb, it is "impossible for [me] not to fall in love with [Milo]". I am afraid I must have a heart of stone, or perhaps a more discerning approach than the marketing... More

“One for the Harold Fry fans”

Sometimes in fiction you meet characters who you would do anything to avoid meeting (Dolores Umbridge, Sauron, Scrappy Doo), some that grow on you (Eeyore, Harold Fry, Mr Darcy) and some that you just want to take... More
