This is the second book to follow the adventures of Lilli—a young girl who has moved from the Australian bush to the city—and her magical animal friend, Shadow.
While on holiday visiting family in the bush, Lilli discovers that Shadow is fading. Someone, or something, has taken over Shadow’s home in the old mango tree and Shadow is scared. With Lilli’s help, and with some assistance from Nan, they find the best solution for everyone, including the mango tree creature. Inspired by the art of Aboriginal storytelling, this charming read is sure to entertain junior readers.
