There's something about the ancient piccolo in the strange, old music shop that calls to Luke. He can't help picking it up. But then Luke finds his dark dreams of revenge against his enemies starting to come true. He begins to suspect that it was the piccolo that picked him out, and for its own sinister purposes.

Author information

Gene Kemp was born in Wigginton, Staffordshire in 1926. Before becoming a hugely succesful childrens writer, Gene was a teacher. It was from this profession that many of her ideas came from. Certainly, her best-known story the turbulent term of Tyke Tyler and its setting of Crinklepit combined school were inspired by Genes previous occupation. Her trademark humour and realistic fiction mean that Gene is widely recognised for the school story a new lease of life. The turbulent term of Tyke Tyler won the Children's rights workshop other award in 1977 and the Carnegie medal in 1978. The clock tower Ghost, Juniper and Just Ferret were all shortlisted for the Smarties prize. Gene now lives in Exeter.

Review quote

Kemp builds setting, characters and plot with her characteristic eye for the offbeat detail which absorbs young readers. Books for Keeps
