Product description

In the dusty, forgotten town of Boxter live two forgotten twins: Dallas and Florida. They’ve spent their entire lives in the town orphanage, a ramshackle prison which they’ve slowly lost hope of escaping. Every attempt to foster the twins has gone horribly wrong – until the day that old Mr and Mrs Morey arrive, and take the children to the green paradise of Ruby Holler. Old but not jaded, the bohemian Moreys are looking for children to take away on a fantastic adventure. But Dallas and Florida can’t believe that they’re really wanted, and they have no idea how to fit into family life. As mishaps, misunderstandings and mayhem intervene, can the unlikely foursome find a way to live their dreams? Winner of the Carnegie Medal, this deliciously whimsical and magical story combines quirky characters with important themes of family, loyalty and learning to belong.
