Synopsis

From the author of the award-winning His Name was Walter comes another magical mystery story that will delight Emily Rodda fans.

Buttons three, attend to me!

Take me where I want to be!

No one saw Eliza Vanda arrive in Tidgy Bay that rainy winter afternoon. The sign advertising 'Cabins for Rent' was almost hidden by a pile of builder's rubble, but Eliza Vanda didn't seem at all put out by the mess.

'This is a nice little pocket,' she said. 'It should suit us very well.'

Life hasn't been much fun for Milly Dynes lately. There seem to be problems everywhere she looks. She's always loved her home in Tidgy Bay, but at the moment she wishes she was somewhere -anywhere - else.

Then Eliza Vanda turns up-and magic comes with her ...

A sparkling new fantasy adventure from multi-award-winning author Emily Rodda.
