About the Book

Goose, Boo, Daddoo and Bear set off on a wild adventure. Their mission is to find a mysterious map in a bottle. If they fail, the wicked Foosnags will invade Goodlybuttonswell and they will all be doomed!

As they traverse across the mystical and wild continent of Figmentica, they find themselves on a voyage of discovery. They meet all sorts of fascinating and unusual creatures along the way and learn much about their continent, which they have never dared to explore before.

Will they come to understand more about their fellow Figmenticans or are they on a voyage of self discovery too?

Most importantly; can they save Goodlybuttonswell from certain doom?

About the Author

I was born in Africa and have lived on this glorious continent all my life. I grew up in a remote part of Zimbabwe called Nyamandhlovu which means Meat of the Elephant. I am the youngest of six children, and my childhood was blessed with the joyous pandemonium that only such a large family can bring! I attended boarding school as a weekly boarder for my entire schooling career. My life has been blessed with times of chaotic company and fun but also with many moments of quiet solitude to be alone with my paintbrushes and the stories in my head. I have been visited by tragedy and heartache, happiness and love – the last two of whom; I am glad to say, have been my most constant and long lasting visitors. I am now deeply in love with and blissfully married to my best friend and soul mate – Mark. He is my pillar of strength that calms and channels the chaotic buzz in my creative brain! I have four hilariously diverse children in my life. They are a constant source of hilarity, frustration, love and inspiration. The mere thought of them “bubbles up a warm giggle” as I reflect on what a blessing they are to me. Before I started writing The Gadoomfs I worked as a painter, now I do both. Whether writing or painting, I spend my working hours in my studio which is nestled amongst enormous Masasa trees. We live in a remote part of Zambia, still in the bush; bliss.
