The stunning new 10+ story from the bestselling and award-winning author of TIME TRAVELLING WITH A HAMSTER, for anyone who loved the humour of WALL-E, the action of STAR WARS and the deeply touching emotion of ET.

A small village is rocked by the disappearance of Tammy, 12.  Only her twin brother, Ethan, knows she is safe  – and the extraordinary truth of where she is.  It is a secret he must keep, or risk never seeing her again.

But that doesn’t mean he’s going to give up.

Together with his friend Iggy and the mysterious (and very hairy) Hellyann, Ethan embarks on a nail-biting chase to get his sister back…that will take him further than anyone has ever been before.

Selected for Read Manchester – every Year Six child in Manchester was gifted a copy in June 2020 for the city’s first “transition read.”

"Ross Welford is superb. This tense, rip-roaring, witty adventure is underpinned by a moving examination of love and loyalty."

The Daily Mail

"Original, amusing and gripping. Welford is a remarkably entertaining storyteller"
