The Worlds We Leave Behind

A powerful and poignant story about friendship from this magnificent pairing of A.F. Harrold and illustrated by Levi Pinfold.


“A dark and intriguing mystery, full of Pinfold’s breath-taking artwork” Editor’s Choice in The Bookseller Children’s Previews for August. 

Hex never meant for the girl to follow him and his friend Tommo into the woods. He never meant for her to fall off the rope swing and break her arm. When the finger of blame is pointed at him, Hex runs deep into the woods and his fierce sense of injustice leads him to a strange clearing in the woods - a clearing that has never been there before - where an old lady in a cottage offers him a deal. She'll rid the world of those who wronged him and Hex can carry on his life with them all forgotten and as if nothing ever happened. But what Hex doesn't know is someone else has been offered the same deal.

When Hex's best friend Tommo wakes up the next day, he is in a completely different world but he only has murmurs of memories of the world before. Moments of deja vu that feel like Tommo's lived this day before. Can Tommo put the world right again? Back to how it was? Or can he find a way to make a new world that could be better for them all?

“Yet again A.F Harrold & Levi Pinfold have produced a near perfect work of art. Harrold’s words bring wit and wonder together, and their spirit is beautifully caught by Pinfold's images.” ― Carnegie-winning author, Anthony McGowan.

The Worlds We Leave Behind is published this month by Bloomsbury - yet another future classic by this dream team author illustrator partnership.
