A touching story about a boy in hospital, who dreams wild and extraordinary dreams as he faces a life-saving operation.

Jim is in hospital. He s frightened. What if the doctors send him somewhere that he can t find his way back from? Nurse Bami tells Jim that he must go to his "good place" and there, his "finder" will come looking for him. Everyone has a finder. And so, deep in Jim s dreams, he finds his: a lion. In Soonchild, Russell Hoban s final piece of fiction before he died, Alexis Deacon met the spirit and wit of Hoban s vision head-on - brilliantly capturing the dark magic that lay at the heart of this fable. Since then, it feels almost impossible to imagine a better match for Hoban s words than Alexis art.
