The story of a mother, her son, a locked room and the outside world.Jack is five and, like any little boy, excited at the prospect of presents and cake. Hes looking forward to telling his friends its his birthday, too. But although Jack is a normal child in many ways - loving, funny, bright, full of energy and questions - his upbringing is far from ordinary: Jacks entire life has been spent in a single room that measures just 12 feet by 12 feet- as far as hes concerned, Room is the entire world.He shares this world with his mother, with Plant, and tiny Mouse (though Ma isnt a fan and throws a book at Mouse when she sees him).

Theres TV too, of course - and the cartoon characters he thinks of as his friends - but Jack knows that nothing else he sees on the screen is real. Old Nick, on the other hand, is all too real, but only visits at night - like a bat - when Jack is meant to be asleep and hidden safely in Wardrobe.

And only Old Nick has the code to Door, which is otherwise locked...Told in Jacks voice, Room is the story of a mothers love for her son, and of a young boys innocence.Celebrating 40 years of outstanding international writing, this is one of the essential Picador novels reissued in a beautiful new series style.
