Product Description

Eleven-year-old Jonquil (known as Quil) Medway is a girl with more than an unusual name. Quil's parents died in a car accident when she was a baby and she now goes to boarding school, but spends her holidays with an aunt - or at camp, which is where Quil is heading when she decides to get off early at a train stop called Hoopers Bend.

It is there that Quil meets Pirate, a chunky little white dog with black spots who immediately adopts her and Bailey, a crabby older lady who has gone to Hoopers Bend to check out the shop that has been left to her by an uncle.

There is something magical about the shop at Hoopers Bend though, and once it casts its spell on Quil and Bailey they are drawn together in an unlikely friendship and their fight to save the shop from developers.

From one of Australia's most renowned children's authors, this is a story about coming home when you didn't even know that was where you belonged.

A pleasant Surprise

I purchased this book in an airport bookstore with the intent of keeping me occupied whilst on my flight home. What I got was an amazing story, very engaging and beautifully written. Being an Australian I was trying to work out where this was set knowing some of the locations mentioned. I recommend this book to ANYONE who is a lover of fiction, Australian Authors and engaging stories. YOU NEED THIS BOOK!!!
