About the book

Here are Old Tip and Old Toot, Gotta Henry and the Rawleighs Man and the Institute and Mum herself - redoubtable Mum who was doing everything years before girls could do anything. And always there's Uncle Trev entertaining the sick child with yet another timeless tale, tall as the mountains and wide as Trev's own heart.
