'Pizza for breakfast, no bedtime, skateboarding encouraged and ... no parents!

Welcome to Verdada.

When Edsel takes an unexpected voyage to a parallel dimension, Verdada, his life is transformed overnight. Suddenly, his over-protective parents are nowhere to be seen and rules are a thing of the past.

Or so he thinks.

Everything seems perfect.

Everything is not what it seems.

Edsel needs to decide between the world he knows or being forever young in a place of forever fun. 'But time is running out.

Will Edsel be stuck in Verdada forever?' (From the publisher's website.)

'When Edsel Grizzler left Verdada, longing for a normal home life, he was told he could never return. But when he receives a desperate note from Verdada, pleading for his help, Edsel must embark on another, greater adventure - a rescue mission.

'Back in Verdada, the rules have changed. The Mira are gone, the kids are alone and fending for themselves. Things are chaotic and Ben is struggling to maintain order. It's up to Edsel to step in before it is too late.

'Is Jacq the key to their survival? Will Edsel's bold mission be a success? Or will Verdada - and the children - be lost forever?' (From the publisher's website.)

y Edsel Grizzler : Ghostly Shadows James Roy , St Lucia : University of Queensland Press , 2011 Z1788665 2011 single work children's fiction children's fantasy 'Edsel and his friend Jacq are digging a hole under the blazing Widen sun but they don't know why. And when they finally make their way to Grand City, the list of things they don't know just gets longer and longer. Everything they see, everything they're told, simply makes them more confused.

So can Edsel keep the promise he made to Ben and the children of Verdada to rescue them? Why is the usually feisty Jacq suddenly so pale and forgetful? And who are the strange, ghostly figures that form wispy dreams with their bare hands?

The final, thrilling instalment of the Edsel Grizzler trilogy, Edsel must not only find answers to all this and more - he must also search deep within to discover who he really is once and for all.' (Publisher's blurb)
