He'd been cruelly punished: Junky, the ugly old toy with the jewel-like eyes, the only thing that really belonged to him, had been deliberately smashed. And that hurt even more than having three fingers accidentally severed. Horty finds a new home among the freaks of a travelling carnival, protected by the beautiful midget, Zena. For Zena knows the truth about Junky and the jewels. She knows that Horty is one of the 'jewel people', and she knows what others would do to him if they found out that the jewels are living, thinking alien crystals from outer space.Hide synopsis

Horty was different and he found comfort and love in the carnie. A young boy finds friends and understanding. A beautiful story of kindness and yet fear and mystery for the future. This isgood read that spanned over my lifetime.
