Overview

There’s a new boy at Matty and Bill’s school – Crispin de Floriette. He’s from England and not like anyone else they’ve met before. Spoilt Isabelle soon notices Crispin and plots to make him her new friend. But Bill knows first-hand what sort of ‘friend’ Isabelle can be …

However, Crispin is not the only one who needs rescuing. Maggot is back and Bill is anxious about his dad being caught up in another crooked scheme. To make matters worse, Bill has his own worries – feelings so confusing he doesn’t know how to describe them. Even Matty isn’t sure how to help this time.

An enchanting story of friendship, growing up and acceptance from one of Australia’s favourite storytellers.
