Summary

This is the story of a sleepy town called Suds. A place where stories fill the air of children who keep turning grey and disappearing without a trace....

Poppy and Erasmus are certain there's something peculiar going on in Suds, and they're determined to unravel its secrets. But when they discover the answers might lie in the dark and twisting woods, can they find the courage to creep inside and solve this riddling mystery?

Perfect Narrator!

Absolutely love the way Jilly Bond conjures the whole story so clearly in front of you with her performance. Her characterizations are just EXACTLY as I imagined them reading it. She breathes life into every description and really captures the essence of the story. I've listened to this twice over already!
