The dreadful strangers moved in on a wild and windy Thursday.'Fudgenuts,' cursed Picklewitch, adjusting her cracked binoculars to get a better view of the comings-and-goings. 'This won't do at all.

And unluckily for brainbox Jack - winner of the 'Most Sensible Boy in School' for the third year running - she's about to choose him as her new best friend . . .

Author's Bio

Claire Barker is an author and illustrator. When she's not busy doing this she spends her days wrestling sheep, battling through nettle patches and triumphantly catching rogue chickens. She used to live on narrow-boats but now lives with her delightful family on a small, untidy farm in deepest, darkest Devon. She is a regular helper at her local school and still loves nothing more than losing herself in a good story. Claire is the author of middle grade animal fantasy fiction series Knitbone Pepper. TEEMU JUHANI is a Finnish illustrator, comic artist and graphic designer based in London. Born and raised in a land of snow and northern lights, he grew up holding his pencil and dreaming of superheroes. Teemu has studied graphic design and illustration in both Finland and the Netherlands. Currently he's most likely eating some cookies.
