Mum takes him there, and he meets a little girl called Lucy, who looks after him. Lenny and Lucy sing a song, do some drawing, ride the tricycles and play with a ball. Then, after a drink of juice it’s time for a story. When it’s time to go home Lenny wants to stay a bit longer to play with his new friend. And he can’t wait to come back tomorrow.

Has he spontaneously combusted? (Ted’s theory.) Has he been kidnapped? (Aunt Gloria’s theory.) Is he even still alive? (The family’s unspoken fear.)

Even the police are baffled. Ted, whose brain runs on its own unique operating system, and his older sister, Kat, overcome their prickly relationship to become sleuthing partners. They follow a trail of clues across London in a desperate bid to find their cousin, while time ticks dangerously by…

With a crack and a rip, the brothers hatch, and out comes a bird and a … crocodile!

But they can’t be brothers – can they?

Each fiend wants to take its favourite thing home, to look at whenever it wants. One by one the moon, sun, sky, land and sea are claimed until nothing is left. But do they pick wisely?

A wonderful and utterly unique picture book about the pleasure of sharing.
