Synopsis: An outcast among the children in his new town in the Fens, James is befriended by ailing Gaffer Samson, who gives James his battered bicycle and sends him in search of the "luck" he buried seventy years earlier

Review: "An unusual story of grace, thoughtfulness, and wit. James feels utterly displaced when he moves with his parents from the rugged landscape of Yorkshire to the English fen country...Imbuing the narrative with a graphic, insistent sense of place, the author has also woven into it patterns of social custom, human behavior, and childhood feelings, giving the brief novel both sensibility and suspense." --"The Horn Book"
