Two children in 1940s South Africa are told, "Stay away from lonely places, there is a child abductor at large."

If Roald Dahl, Gerald Durrell and Stephen King had teamed up to write a South African version of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ they might have produced something like this.

When you finish this book, the first thing you will want to do – is read it again.
