Synopsis

That Car! by Cate Kennedy

We found the old car in the shed the very first day we moved to the farm. Dad put it under the peppercorn tree. 'You kids might as well play in it for the time being,' he said. We couldn't wait to find out where that car would take us...A story about three children, one old car, and a world of imagination...
