"Outstanding... I raced through it." - Malorie Blackman
Lu Hersey worked as an advertising copywriter until she escaped to become a librarian and study for an MA in writing for young people at Bath Spa University. She shares her house with a surfeit of young adults who won't leave home and keep calling her ‘Mum'. Surprisingly she finds their dialogue, strangely disturbing habits and erratic sleeping patterns a constant source of inspiration.

Here is a sprightly tale of magic and romance, in which those geese play a most surprising role.
