On Thursdays, Nelson, Ashley and Mum head out to the bank. But not just any old bank – the food bank. With its shining tins and packets of food stacked from floor to ceiling, Nelson thinks it’s the best kind of bank there is. But there’s a thief in town, and the shelves of the food bank are getting emptier each day, leaving people hungrier than ever. For the sake of his family and everyone else’s, Nelson needs to make them stop. But can he and his friends really be the ones to catch the bank robber?

This poignant and moving book brings a child's perspective to the increasing problem of food poverty in the UK.  Shining a light on a very real issue, Onjali Q. Rauf doesn't shy away from reality; this book will open the eyes of many people young or old.
