"What's up with Dad? His face is like a sinking moon." A boisterous, comic novel with a heavy sadness -a.k.a. The Terrible Yoot- at its core, one which Aubrey is determined to combat with the help of the creatures of Rushing Wood. A thoughtful and clever novel told from the perspective of a child determined to 'rescue' his dad from depression. 'Great book which explores parental depressions (warts and all) in a safe way, including attempted suicide' (Sylvi, Children's Social Work Director, LL reviewer). With evocative, black and white, pencil etchings. Age 8-12, Paperback 200pp
