Author(s): DUBOSARSKY, URSULA
Tibby feels like everything is going wrong. Her big brother Clarence is all grown up, and doesn't want to play with her any more. If Clarence says there aren't any pixies except in books, then what exactly did Tibby see in the bush, peering out from behind a leaf? Ursula Dubosarsky has created a charming story inspired by a postcard of gumnut fairies. It is set in Australia at the time of the First World War and touches on the changes that affected most families as the young men went off to fight.
