AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In Faraway Island, the bugaboos are on the prowl! These nasty, slimy monsters pounce on their victims, frightening them out of their wits, then stealing their gold and treasure. So far, Eden the healing fairy and her friends the water bunyip and the Wattleman have all been bugabooed and they are not happy!

Meanwhile, Cedar, the fairy wand-maker and keeper of spells, is attending to her one hundred fairy penguins, Penelope, Peg, Petra, Petunia, Penly and Portia, among others. The time has come for them to hatch their chicks. Every one hundred years, her penguins hatch fabulous balls of fluffy gold. The Goldies , as they are known, are fed golden perch until they become big and fat. Once they lose their down, they turn black and white.

Before long, however, Cedar discovers her penguin friends have been frozen and their eggs have gone missing!

Have the bugaboos been at it again? It s up to Cedar and Astara, the Fairy Queen, to save the day. ' (Publication summary)
