Clifton Elementary, My Dear Clifton by Bob de Groot


Clifton Elementary, My Dear Clifton by Bob de Groot

A simple errand that turns into a car accident, and Clifton bangs his head and blacks out. An unfortunate if not uncommon occurrence, even for the dashing colonel - until he wakes up to realise that his passenger, Jade, has vanished! When, the next morning, a mysterious 'doctor' calls at his house to tell him a fantastical story, the sceptical Clifton is soon dragged into a very unusual investigation. Oh, and the doctor's name? Watson. Doctor Watson.
