In a warm-hearted novel with over 40 illustrations, Linda Rogers and Rick Van Krugel have created a magical children's book that will appeal especially to young readers aged 6 to 13. The story tells of Jen and Odie who discover that their First Nations friend Frankie Zapper possesses magic, shamanistic powers. When their teacher, Mr. Smith, hurts Odie's feelings by making fun of his learning disability, strange things happen. This is a mystery story about friendship and loyalty, and three kids who stick together when they have problems with their families and at school. This story will make you laugh, unless you think turning a teacher into a parrot isn't funny. This time it is the kids who have the common sense and the grown-ups who learn from them.

Linda Rogers writes adult fiction and poetry as well as books for children, and teaches Creative Writing at Camosun College and on Writers in Electronic Residence, which links up young writers across the country.
