Uncle Trev and his Whistling Bull by Jack Lasenby
I’d been sick in bed for ages. Uncle Trev said he and Old Tip would come , so Mum could get out of the house for a change. “You needn’t think that man’s coming in here, ” Mum said. ” Going through my cake tins, filling you up with silly stories, and bringing that dog inside as soon as I’m out of the house. I can smell it even before I put my foot in the back door.”
That didn’t stop Uncle Trev. He’d sneak in and tell me stories about the animals on his farm, his neighbour Gotta Henry, and the time the barbarians sacked the town…
This is a new hilarious novel by the very famous New Zealand writter, Jack Lasenby.

Tiff’s sparkling world comes crashing down when her mum commits a crime. Packed off to live with family in the dullest place on the planet- and without Mum around, everything seems to lose its shine…
Reading this book might make you discover your very own inner shine…
