Synopsis

Two children growing up in 1940s South Africa are told to stay away from lonely places because there is a child abductor on the loose. What could possibly go wrong?

Young Maudie doesn't realise she has a 'gift' that seems more like a curse to her brother Tadpole who is the only person aware of it.

Together they share fun and brave adventures in a sunny world that can turn cold and stormy in a moment. All the while something or someone is stalking them.

If Roald Dahl, Gerald Durrell and Stephen King had teamed up to write a South African version of 'To Kill a Mockingbird' they might have produced something like this.

A moving, exciting, sometimes scary, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny adventure set against a South African backdrop. When you finish this book, the first thing you will want to do - is read it again.
