An charming fantasy adventure for readers aged 8+

Young readers will be enchanted by this magical mystery by South Africa's most renowned children's author, Jaco Jacobs

We love the sound of this quirky fantasy adventure about one girl's wish to fit in. Combining all our favourite genres, this magical story is packed with humour and mystery - perfect for fans of Abi Elphinstone and Sophie Anderson.


Wilson Taylor is desperate to fit in. To not live in a house on wheels, to not have a famous mother and, especially, to not be named after a tennis racket.

Wilson’s family have just moved to a new town, where she meets Ava – a girl who doesn’t fit in at all. There’s only one problem: someone else has discovered Ava’s secret, and they’re determined to make her the star of their show.

When Ava goes missing, it’s up to Wilson and her new friend Errol to find her. Can they pull off a daring rescue mission before it’s too late?

Jaco Jacobs is the most popular and prolific children's book author in Afrikaans. He has written many books including A Good Day for Climbing Trees and A Good Night for Shooting Zombies and has sold over a million copies worldwide. Jaco's work has been translated into English, Dutch, Italian, Slovenian and Spanish. He lives in Bloemfontein, South Africa.
