Description

Philippa's life is changed forever one summer when she meets a furry, shadowy little creature called a nimbin, who adopts her and takes over her beach bag as its home. Not many people know about the nimbin, but Philippa shares the secret with her new friend, Greg, and together the three of them experience the most surprising - and maddening - summer ever.show more

About Jenny Wagner

Jenny Wagner lives with her husband, their dog and three lazy cats in a small Queensland farmhouse that looks like a witch's cottage. The garden is full of possums, lizards, goannas, frogs, scrub turkeys and other birds. Sometimes a couple of wallabies come to visit, too. Jenny likes writing best of all, unless it's going badly, in which case she hates it. She also likes going for walks, listening to classical music, studying languages, doing cryptic crossword puzzles, getting together with friends and putting off the vacuuming. She likes two-minutes noodles with tomato paste stirred in, brussels sprouts and good coffee. She doesn't like racism, cruelty to animals or people, or getting up early. As well as her best-selling novels featuring the nimbin, Jenny Wagner has also written several very successful children's picture books. The Bunyip of Berkeley's Creek and John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat both won the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Ward (Picture Books) and are widely considered to be classics.show more
