Teacher and Librarian Competition: I Am David

Closing date: 7th May 2018

In this month’s teachers and librarians competition we’re giving away 30 copies of I Am David, by Anne Holm.

I Am David was first published in Britain in 1965 and has not been out of print since. It has gone on to be adapted into a film and is considered a classic all over Europe.

David escapes from the concentration camp where he has spent his entire life and flees across Europe. He is utterly alone – who can he trust? What will await him? And all the while, how can he be sure that they won’t catch up with him.

This is the remarkable story of David’s introduction to the world. He learns that his polite manner, his haunted eyes and his thin features are strange to other people. He must learn to fend for himself in this strange new world.

An incredible story of survival against all odds and self discovery, for readers of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and The Book Thief.

Enter our teacher and librarian competition by 01 May for your chance to win 30 copies of I Am David from Egmont’s Modern Classics for your school or library, as well as a selection of Whittard teabags and a box of Lindt Lindor chocolates for your staffroom.
