Aubrey is a rambunctious boy who tries to run before he can walk and has crashed two cars before he’s old enough to drive one. But when his father, Jim, falls under a horrendous spell Aubrey is determined to break it. Everyone says his task is impossible, but with the help of the animals of Rushing Wood, Aubrey will never give up and never surrender – even if he must fight the unkillable Spirit of Despair itself: the TERRIBLE YOOT!
“A jewel not to be missed … about a rambunctious boy’s quest, helped by talking woodland animals, to break the spell of despair that has overwhelmed his father. This is a funny, big-hearted, nimble, original story, with a quality of fairy tale, a sensitive way of dealing with the important subject of depression and engaging black-and-white illustrations.” –Nicolette Jones
