AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'City boy Flynn is taken to Mission Beach by his dad to ready his Grandad Barney's banana farm for sale. Flynn has never been north before, even when his grandad was alive, and the last thing he wants to do is to be stuck in the middle of woop-woop with his dad who thinks he is too young to be trusted with anything!.

'When Flynn meets local girl Abby and two lost baby cassowaries things become interesting. What does Abby know about Grandad's mysterious death? And why does Dad refuse to talk about it and seem so scared of the cassowaries? Did this dinosaur-like bird kill Grandad?

'Time is running out and Flynn and Abby need a plan. Can Flynn convince Dad to tell him the truth before it is too late for the cassowaries?' (Publication summary)
