Rain May and her mum escape their old inner-city life for a dream house in the country. But there are more than a few surprises in store – like discovering a platypus or the fun of fridge poetry and phenomenally bright eleven-year-old, Captain Daniel, who lives next door. Together these unlikely friends adventure where no one has gone before.
