Publisher's Summary

A big story about a small boy who sees the world a little differently.

Nine-year-old Milo Moon has retinitis pigmentosa: his eyes are slowly failing and he will eventually go blind. But for now he sees the world through a pin hole and notices things other people don't. When Milo's beloved gran succumbs to dementia and moves into a nursing home, Milo soon realises there's something wrong at the home. So with just Tripi, the nursing home's cook, and Hamlet, his pet pig, to help, Milo sets out on a mission to expose the nursing home and the sinister Nurse Thornhill.

Insightful, wise and surprising, What Milo Saw is filled with big ideas and simple truths. Milo sees the world in a very special way and it will be impossible for you not to fall in love with him and then share his story with everyone you know.

An absolutely delightful story!

I haven't enjoyed a book so much in ages. A joy from beginning to end. Such a pity it had to.

Good Not Great

I was actually a bit disappointed with this book. The premise had me hooked but somehow it just failed to deliver. Certainly was not a bad book and maybe my expectations were too high.
