James is stuck in school for the holidays and feeling sorry for himself. But when he stumbles upon the hideout of a local gang of thieves led by a mysterious stranger, he won't let lockdown stop him from investigating.
Jenny hasn’t been outside in weeks. Then some nasty out-of-town polecats kidnap her neighbour's dog, Teddy, and she finds herself in an impossible position: break lockdown and rescue Teddy, or let the polecats eat him for dinner.
With the help of a pair of mercenary rats, along with a deadly squirrel assassin, James and Jenny must find Teddy, stop the thieves, and solve a mystery that threatens to destroy their town.
This story is an exciting and magical adventure, perfect for children ages 9 to 12. And perfect for adults who love children’s fantasy!
TDL White lives in Brighton in a house on a hill that looks out across other hills. He tells stories in podcasts and writes books too. At one time he was a full-time school teacher, another time he worked all day long adjusting maps. Maps of underground pipes.
TDL White is a serial hobbyist. He folds paper (origami), plays music (guitar), climbs walls (bouldering), bothers crabs and fish (while sea swimming), and for some reason he has started carving spoons with an axe (spoonaxing).
Most of all, TDL White loves stories of adventure and mystery and magic. And squirrel assassins.
