"in which the Tindims of Rubbish Island welcome some spooky guests"
Surprises are turning up willy nilly in this, the latest adventure for the delightful Tindims, a little community of friends who, like nautical Borrowers, live on a floating island made of recycled rubbish pulled out of the sea. There’s a something or a someone in Broom’s pumpkin patch, which can be heard but not seen. Their invisible visitors are a little witch called Tilly Topple, and a little ghost given the name Spooks by the Tindims, who appreciate the importance of such things. The Tindims have never heard of Hallowe’en until their new friends explain, and they put their own spin on it, throwing a Tindiween party – Hallowe’en without the scary bits - before helping Tilly and Spooks go home. These stories have so much to intrigue and charm young readers, who will love spending time on cosy Rubbish Island in the company of the innocent but environmentally aware and ingenious Tindims.
The font is dyslexia friendly and with illustrations by Lydia Corry throughout (as well as a simply gorgeous colour map on the inside cover) these stories are accessible to all.
