This is the amazing tale of eleven-year-old Solomon, who idolises the great Ethiopian runners of his day and dreams of becoming a great runner himself. When his grandfather decides to take him to the big city, the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, little does Solomon know that he is about to discover things about his family that he never knew, and get up close to his heroes. But when his grandfather becomes ill, can he become the runner he has dreamt of being to get back to his family?
An extraordinary story packed with the unexpected, this book will take you on a journey that makes you think about your own dreams and how they could come true.
