A thrilling adventure set in Sri Lanka for readers aged 8+

Young animal lovers will be gripped by this story packed with peril, thieves and a terrifying bear!


Nizrana Farook's previous three books have been huge hits with the Parrot Street crew. The Sri Lankan setting is so vividly depicted and her characters are always beautifully drawn and empathetic.

~Emily

Nuwan works at the library, delivering books. One day, he accidentally takes away a very valuable key that's been hidden inside one of the books, and in the process thwarts the plans of some very dangerous thieves. On the run, he hides in a cave, only to discover in the middle of the night that he is sharing it with a big, hairy, terrifying bear! After some hair-raising moments, he and the bear reach an understanding and they travel on together, evading the bad guys and hoping the key will unlock the answers to the mystery so that they can stop running and return home...

Nizrana Farook was born and raised in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and the beautiful landscapes of her home country find their way into the stories she writes. She has a master's degree in writing for young people, and lives with her family in Hertfordshire.
