Deeba and Zanna are schoolmates in London. Some odd things have been happening lately around Zanna. For starters, a strange woman and a strange man have approached her. A fox has been staring at her on the schoolground. And a cloud in the sky looks just like her. What is going on?
This is a great read that turns traditional plotlines upside down. The vivid word images are accompanied by lively spot illustrations (drawn by the author) that delight and amuse. With a slight environmental twist that doesn't overwhelm the storyline, the book reaches beyond the usual boundaries of fantasy fiction. The story is easy and entertaining enough for older children to follow, but the subtext and character development will keep teens and adults hooked.
