About Book

Jack Doodlebug-Dowser looks back to his childhood in rural Zimbabwe in this highly entertaining tale. He lives with his brother, Junior, their parents and grandparents in Penhalonga in the beautiful Eastern Highlands. The family fall on hard times when his eccentric wheelchair-bound granny, Nonna, accidentally blows herself up and the family home whilst searching for gold!

Homeless; the family are forced to live on a caravan site run by the mean and very unpleasant Mr Van Der Plonker, who decides to raise the already destitute family's rent. Whilst Mum and Dad worry how they can find the extra money, Granddad hatches a plan to get even with Van der Plonker and get the rent reduced.

Whilst this is happening the family realise young Jack has a very unusual talent; a talent that along with Granddad's ancient treasure map could solve all the family's problems.
