A highly readable new pre-teen novel from the beloved New Zealand writer Joy Cowley.

Dunger is that most unusual of books, a highly enjoyable story for young readers which older readers also find to their taste. A tale for all ages.

The Source (AU)

Utterly charming and engaging … I fell in love with the family … A great holiday read to share, read aloud, or pass around.

The Alligator's Mouth

Funny, moving and genuine. As ever, Cowley hits the mark with her audience.
