AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The small Australian country town of Longwood had two things going for it - oranges and the Punjabi Pappadum, the popular Indian restaurant, owned by Veejay Singh's parents. When the flashy new Burger Barn opens things start to go downhill for Veejay and his family. Veejay's choirboy mates rally behind him to put the Pappadum back on the map. Intertwined with a robbery, a rock eisteddfod and sinister happenings this unusual and humorous story will hold the interest of young readers. The appealing cover and short chapters will encourage readers to choose the book as a quick read.' (Source: CMIS Evaluation)
