About the Book

At the age of eleven, Jack is resigned to his world. So what if he can never satisfy his mother's desire for perfection as his brother can? So what if he's lonely out on Whixall Moss? He doesn't care - or so he likes to tell himself. Then one day he sees, in a boat hidden on the creek, a beautiful, fabulous beast. At once he is filled with a wild longing: he must own it. But the boat's mysterious inhabitants have other ideas...

First published in 1997, this gripping and powerful novel by prize-winning Pauline Fisk is a tale that will live long in the imagination.
