A book for younger readers, illustrated by Loui Silvestro
There's a new kid in our block of flats. He doesn't say much. He doesn't do much, either. Mostly he just hangs around holding onto his dumb old cricket bat. He doesn't even hit a ball with it! He just whacks it at the grass out the front - and at the tree!
He'll have to watch out or the Dragon Lady will get him. She planted that tree! It'll serve him right anyway. There's not enough room in our block of flats for him and me - and a cricket bat! At least I don't think so . . .
