Paperboy is a journey through the salient moments of a young boy’s life – the fears, the trials, the tragedies and the small triumphs – with each moment contemplated in terms of paper. Tissue paper that tears too readily, fly paper to which nasty things adhere, folded paper with which to create hope.

Further Information

Paperboy is written by Danny Parker, whose poetic prose for young readers has won him prestigious awards.

Bethany MacDonald’s sensitive collages both illustrate and embody the leitmotifs of the enigmatic book.
