AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When you're an orphan, new parents are the most important thing in the world. But when Mrs. O'Squealin tries out some parents on Bill the Inventor, he doesn't like what she's found - pirates, a wizard and witch, and even blobby aliens! Bill's inventions are the only thing that might save him from a life of peg-legs, roasted toads or extra tentacles. But will his inventions be enough?' (Source: Libraries Australia.)
