Imagine a boy living all alone is a large old house with only a sky-blue bike (who thinks he’s a horse) for company. After his great-aunt dies (of dachshund poisoning – what else?) Fennymore sets off with his new friend Fizzy to find his parents, who have disappeared. They fall foul of a silvery grey gentleman and an evil doctor who wants to get his hands on a mysterious invention, but all Fennymore finds is a maybe-dad. And a brumella. Whatever that is. A zany adventure story with a touch of fantasy from award-winning author Kirsten Reinhardt with black-and-white line drawings by David Roberts of Dirty Bertie fame. A properly funny middle grade book, perfect for readers age 8+.
