Description of this Book

A new series from the bestselling author of Friday Barnes and Nanny Piggins!When April, Finn and Joe Peski come home from school one day to find their mother missing, they are forced to go and live with their bumbling dad. They haven't seen their dad in years, and to make matters worse, he lives in a small country town - how will these city kids cope? In the country everything is green, the air is crisp and clear and the sky is a sharper shade of blue. In fact, everything is so nice it makes the kids uncomfortable.However, with the challenges of a new school, a manipulative next door neighbour, attempted kidnappings and the annual cockroach race, the Peski kids soon realise that life in a country town might not be quite as boring as they imagined!
