A helter-skelter ride of emotions that takes the reader through an 18-month period that drastically changes the life of a 10 year-old boy in 1950s England. Living in a city but having the nature and mind of the countryside, his story will have you laughing and crying from one chapter to the next. From the terror of an escaped bull to a girl with 'Kingfisher eyes'. Can a 10 year old boy be in love with a beautiful Welsh teacher who wears tight skirts, stockings and high heels? Can a father's love withstand the cruellest of life's blows? And what happened to the missing girl? Laughter, fear, humiliation, love and despair, Stix meets them all.
