About the Book

In the third instalment of the Eddie Dickens saga, our hero finds himself en route to North America with some of the most disreputable prospectors anyone might have the misfortune to share a berth with ... only to come face to face with some familiar faces (stuffed animal and human) from his past, and with the Great Gretcha who suffers from serious bouts of sleeping sickness.
