First published in 1998, and a finalist for the Bisto Book of the Year Award, All the Way from China has been reprinted many times since, its story of a correspondence between a withdrawn schoolgirl and her pen-pal in far-off China taking a surprise turn that delights young readers and gives them perhaps their first real glimpse of the power of the written word.
