Elijah of Buxton BSY585

US$13.95

Master storyteller Christopher Paul Curtis's Newbery Honor novel, featuring his trademark humor, unique narrative voice! Eleven-year-old Elijah lives in Buxton, Canada, a settlement of runaway slaves near the American border. He's the first child in town to be born free, and he ought to be famous just for that. Unfortunately, all that most people see is a "fra-gile" boy who's scared of snakes and talks too much. But everything changes when a former slave steals money from Elijah's friend, who has been saving to buy his family out of captivity in the South. Now it's up to Elijah to track down the thief--and his dangerous journey just might make a hero out of him, if only he can find the courage to get back home.

十一岁的男孩伊利亚拥有不同于常人的“天赋”——用投掷石块的方法捕鱼,几乎百发百中。但他的内心非常脆弱,一遇到点小事就惊惧不已,因而他渴望自己快点长大,勇敢面对一切。但他从没想到,一个突如其来的坏消息,让他命运的轨迹从此改变。为了扭转这一切,这个善良而又脆弱的男孩,不得不瞒着父母,告别家乡,奔跑着踏上一段惊心动魄的冒险旅程。横亘在他面前的是巨大的未知,以及在坚守对自己的承诺和遭受重重打击之间的摇摆不定……
