The grey post-war years are trembling on the verge of Technicolour, and the Blyte children are struggling to cope with the transition in their own idiosyncratic ways: Hughs novel is held up by yearning for the Irish au pair- Janey moons over the mystery of men and the enigmatic Black Mini- George wages savage war on his Enemy- and the Moo takes refuge in his exclusive Sloppy Club. A crisis in their parents lives brings madness and death, a supernatural visitor and an all-too-real tiger...

The children have to confront - and conquer - the follies of their elders with wit and invention. Patrick Harpur is the acclaimed author of three novels and three works of non-fiction, including Daimonic Reality, The Philosophers Secret Fire and Mercurius. He lives in West Dorset, worlds away from his Surrey upbringing.
