Witty and warm-hearted, this is a delightful family story spiced with adventure. Everything is distinctly not normal in Ramzi’s house. While mum’s away studying Domes of the East for her architecture course, dad starts waking in the night to do unusual things such as chasing a hen in Ramzi’s wardrobe and trying to catch frogs in the pantry. The truth is, dad’s homesick for his village in Algeria. Soon Ramzi is off on a great trip but will he be able to find the help he needs to get dad back to normal?
