A good read by Odo Hirsch (famous for his Hazel Green series).
Though some think that it is a children's novel, i think it has a very serious moral behind it all. The story is one of an innocent village boy, Yoss, who went to town as part of an ancient tradition. There, he was decieved by tricksters, thieves and merchants, because, after all, "innocence is rare, even rarer than gold... the more you use of it, the less there is" But as Yoss' innocence was sucked dry by leeches, he learns some valuable lessons too.
It is a very enjoyable book, you guys should definitely read it.
