Transformed into kangaroos,they terrorise the sleepy town of Midmeddlecum with glee. But what they didn_Tt count on was being locked in a zoo. Things get even stickier for the mischievous sisters when they learn their father has been imprisoned in a dungeon by Count Hulagu Bloot, the tyrant of Bombardy. Their poor father! Can they rescue him in time?

Portrait
Eric Linklater was born in the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. He fought in the First World War and became a war reporter during the Second World War and the Korean War. The Wind on the Moon began as a story Linklater told his two daughters when they were caught in the rain on a walk. The book later won the Carnegie Medal.
