The Lost Child of Chernobyl

Author(s): Helen Bate

Location(s): Pripyat/Chernobyl

Genre(s): Young Adult

Era(s): 1986

One April night, people living near Chernobyl see a bright light in the sky…Everyone is told to move out of the forbidden zone around the destroyed nuclear reactor, but two stubborn old ladies, Anna and Klara, refuse to leave.

Nine years later, the forest wolves bring a ragged child to their door – a child who has been living with wolves in the forbidden zone. Who is the lost child of Chernobyl and will Anna and Klara be able to find the child’s family after all this time?

Inspired by the real events of the global environmental disaster at Chernobyl in April 1986, this haunting and deeply relevant graphic novel is about the place of humans in the natural world, about healing, survival and the meaning of home.

From the award-wining author of Peter in Peril, USBBY Outstanding International Book, and Me and Mrs Moon.
