The kitchen was a mess. Packets and jars had been flung around. Half the stuff in the fridge was on the floor. There was a trail of flour running through the passage.
For a second Jake thought one of the magazine people must have had an urge to make a cake and decided to do it in their room.
Or was someone else in the house?
Jake's an only kid. He's the only kid in his family. He's the only kid on his island. Or that's what he thinks . . .
About the Author
Morris Gleitzman grew up in England and came to Australia when he was sixteen. After university he worked for ten years as a screenwriter. Then he had a wonderful experience. He wrote a novel for young people. Now, after 36 books, he's one of Australia's most popular children's authors.
'...demonstrates his usual down-to-earth Aussie humour and empathy. In his inimitable way of mixing scary reality with comedy, Gleitzman sensitively introduces the subject of the cruel children's homes that are a shameful part of Australia's past into an often knockabout story of ghosts, impossible guests and the mysterious Mr Goff.'
