IVY SHAMBITT AND THE SOUND MACHINE

by Daniel Evans

Published with Morris Gleitzman's Worry Warts by Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry.

Meet Ivy Shambitt - “…a small and sickly girl – her face was quite a fright, For you see she had no eyes (not one!) and therefore: no sight”

The small town of Apronwood appears normal enough, if a little tired and rundown. But the people of Apronwood harbour a dark secret and they will do anything they can to keep their secret and turn their sleepy village into a thriving tourist attraction. Even if it means murder…

In this delightfully Roald Dahlesque tale, Daniel Evans warns us what happens when a community neglects its children and how the past comes back to haunt us.
