This delightful book follows the adventures of a young boy's memorable stay at his cantankerous Grandmothers house after his father loses a top job and abandons his young family. Amusing chapters takes the reader through a remarkable panorama of adventures featuring the unique palavers and adventures of the “Breakfast- eaters” at an illegal shanty restaurant (which for want of a signboard is dubbed the “Nameless”), the ruminations of a tree-climbing canine philosopher who despairs of the human race, a dastardly election campaign, an elixir for becoming young again, headless ghosts, dubious scholars at a private school, and plenty more lovable incidents and adventures.

The book paints a portrait of life in a specific district of a fictional former British colony in the early sixties.
