9780099572473: The Vanishing Act

On a small island so tiny that it can’t be found on any map live Minou, her philosopher Papa, a pretzel-baking priest, Boxman the magician and a clever dog called No-Name. Minou’s mother arrived on the island in a rowboat, carrying a peacock in a golden bowl, but she vanished the morning after her circus performance in Boxman’s barn. Can her disappearance be explained by the dead boy who has washed up on the beach? In The Vanishing Act, Mette Jakobsen has dreamed up a rich and fantastical world that you will never forget.
