Product Description

Meet Eleanor Rigby: tiny, blind and left behind.

Led by her zealous, overprotective guide dog, Warren, she courses constantly through the places she knows. Tired, mired and sequestered from the world, Eleanor can't shirk the feeling she's going nowhere slowly.

Until, of course, she recognises something in the sound of Ewan Dempsey, reclusive and compulsive maker and player of cellos, who impels in Eleanor a rare moment of caprice. . .

      Comments about Rhubarb:

      I loved "Jasper Jones" so much and wanted more of Craig Silvey's work but what a disappointment. I just couldn't follow it. The story sounded interesting but way too complicated for me. I rarely give a book away but too many books waiting to be read to persevere with this one. Sorry Craig!!
