Mohammed Maguire – Colin Bateman – Genre – Humour
When the Marines destroy a terrorist training camp in the Libyan desert, they also kill both the parents of a ten-year-old boy, Mohammed Maguire.
Brought back to Ireland, the land of his mother’s birth, young Mohammed is treated as a public relations commodity by both sides of an argument that he doesn’t understand – but which he can see with the clear eyes of a child.
My Review: Nooooo! Only Colin Bateman can write about a suicidal Santa, terrorist training camps in Libya, death by fish fingers and foreskins!. Another 5 star book. Brilliant, funny and wonderful.
