Product description

A boy, a dog and a Christmassy adventure: this festive fantasy ticks all the right boxes. It’s nearly Christmas in Brownvale, but it doesn’t feel much like it. Nothing can break the dispirited gloom of this washed-up town. Parson Fall and his iron rules hold the entire place hostage. He doesn’t allow singing (not even hymns), or any fun at all. But one kid, Davy David, has a way of shaking things up. And one stray dog, George, is about to force Davy into action. Enter Miss Flint: an elderly recluse who has planned one last mission in life. Who better than Davy and George to escort her…?

  • A magical festive story about friendship and discovery
  • Truly outstanding writing which is winning rave reviews
  • By the acclaimed author of the Blood Red Road trilogy
  • Blood Red Road won the Costa Children’s Book Award
