Summary

Neighbours Ruby and Jackson get the surprise of their lives when they discover a Thing living at the bottom of their gardens. And when Thing places a curse on the inhabitants of the new house that’s been built over his old home, Ruby and Jackson find themselves up to their eyeballs in jellybabies, magic and BIG trouble.

“A sort of troll crossed with a fairy crossed with a squirrel?” Jackson suggested, after we first discovered Thing.

Contains charming black and white line illustrations by Alex T. Smith
