Synopsis

Tiller and Sairy live a quiet life in Ruby Holler; their children have long since left home and they are happy with their routines. Until one day they each decide they want to undertake a big adventure and they need companions to accompany them. And now it gets exciting because they adopt two children from the local orphanage and form an unlikely foursome, for the children cannot believe they are really 'wanted' and Tiller and Sairy have to deal with some pretty unconventional behaviour on the part of the children. A wonderful, whimsical and magical story that combines quirky action and adventure with the important themes of family, loyalty and learning to belong.

Sharon Creech is the author of many prize-winning and internationally bestselling children's books, including the Smarties-shortlisted, Newbery Medal-winning Walk Two Moons. Her latest older fiction title, The Wanderer, was a Newbery Honour title and was also shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Love That Dog was a Carnegie Honour book, and Ruby Holler won the Carnegie Medal. Her novels are wonderful, life-enhancing stories that beautifully describe a world in which people grow to be better, wiser and happier. She has said of her writing: 'Sometimes I am asked why I don't write books that reflect real-life violence in grittier settings. The answer to that is: because that is not the world I want to live in, nor is it the world I want to offer children. There are beautiful places and beautiful people in this world, plenty of them, and I like to celebrate those places and those people.'
