The funny and moving story of a boy and his friends never losing heart in a sometimes heartless world. Perfect for 8+ readers.

Ludo helps other people. It’s how he was brought up.
When Dad is elected to Federal Parliament, Ludo grabs the chance to make Australia an even better place.
But he soon discovers it’s not the homeless of the national capital who most need his help - it’s the rich and powerful.

Reviews

Thisstory gently pokes fun at politics, ironic policies and organisations that havelost sight of why they were established in the first place, but, coming fromthe eyes of a child, it is eye-opening rather than disrespectful. It’s sure toprompt loads of questions from curious young readers about the way governmentworks and why it sometimes gets things so horribly wrong.
