Jasper Jones is based on the iconic bestselling Australian novel by Craig Silvey that was released by Allen & Unwin in 2009.
Remarkably, Jasper Jones is only Craig's second novel, and has received broad critical acclaim and commercial success, including being shortlisted for the prestigious IMPAC Dublin Literary Award in 2011 and shortlisted for the Australian Miles Franklin Literary Award in 2010.
Due to the book's themes of coming of age and social justice, it has been called 'Australia's To Kill a Mockingbird', and is a popular novel of choice for English students in Years 9-11, as well as readers of all ages and local book clubs.
Jasper Jones is now available as special cover-tie in edition at book retailers around the country.
