When Edsel Grizzler left Verdada, longing for a normal home life, he
was told he could never return. But when he receives a desperate note
from Verdada, pleading for his help, Edsel must embark on another,
greater adventure - a rescue mission.
Back in Verdada, the rules have changed. The Mira are gone, the kids are alone and fending for themselves. Things are chaotic and Ben is struggling to maintain order. It's up to Edsel to step in before it is too late.
Is Jacq the key to their survival? Will Edsel's bold mission be a success? Or will Verdada - and the children - be lost forever?
The second book in the fantastic Edsel Grizzler trilogy.
About The Author
James Roy was born in western New South Wales in 1968, and spent much of his childhood in Papua New Guinea and Fiji, adventuring by day and reading books by night. Then, one day, tired of reading books by dead people, he decided to start writing his own.
His first novel, Almost Wednesday, was released in 1996 and was followed by the CBCA Notable Book Full Moon Racing. Other critical successes came with the CBCA Honour Books Captain Mack and Billy Mack\'s War, and the Notable Books The Legend of Big Red and A Boat for Bridget. In addition to writing fiction, James also drew on his years as an adolescent nurse to write The \'S\' Word - a boys\' guide to sex, puberty and growing up.
James lives in the Blue Mountains with his wife and two daughters. He doesn\'t like olives very much, and in his spare time he demonstrates an entirely misplaced confidence in his skills as a guitarist, painter and sportsman.
