It's the start of the school summer holidays and Fred and Lottie are looking forward to a promised trip to Disney World, but there is a problem. Their dad has suddenly been made redundant and their parents feel there is not enough money for extravagances. So instead they are going to stay in a borrowed static caravan in Yardley Gobion ‒ Where's that, ask the children, and what will they find to do there? Arriving there they are determined to make the most of the situation and set off to explore the area. To their surprise their exploration takes them onto a canal boat, Mouse, which leads them into a magical adventure where they are transported back in time, trying to solve riddles to take them to hidden treasure. But the treasure is not at all what they expect, but nevertheless highly prized.
Kitty Irvine lives with her husband and small dog on a wide beamed canal barge and enjoys touring the canals and the freedom this lifestyle offers. Mysterious Moorings with Mouse is her first in a series of children's magical adventure books.
Loved the innocence of this story. No scarey monsters just wonderful characters with wonderful names.
Nice quiet book for children to read at bedtime. Hope Kitty has another book in the pipeline for us soon.
