Fun to read, this is a harum-scarum adventure full of nursery rhyme references as Polly (she who ‘puts the kettle on’) escapes with her brother Pockets from a life of over crowding and drudgery as one of the daughters of the Old Woman Who Lives in a Shoe. Polly and Pockets look for the perfect home and find one in a pair a seven-league boots. The only problem? They belong to a giant…..

Synopsis

Seventeen Times As High As The Moon by Livi Michael

Polly and her twin brother, Pockets, have had enough of living with their many siblings and their grumpy mother in an old shoe. It's ridiculously overcrowded, the sole leaks and all they are given to eat is broth without any bread. So they decide to go and find a giant - surely his boots will be big enough to live in...

A hilarious, witty novel from the highly acclaimed author of The Whispering Road.
