Discovered in the Unknown Wilderness when she was just a baby, Indigo Wilde was adopted by World-Famous Explorers, Philomena and Bertram, who are always off adventuring.
Home for Indigo and her little brother, Quigley, is 47 Jellybean Crescent, a crazy and colourful house full of magical creatures that her parents have taken in over the years. There’s Fishkins, a purrmaid – half-cat, half-fish, and ALWAYS grumpy; Graham, a llama-corn with a particular taste for tinsel; Olli and Umpf – bright pink and blue yetis who can’t blend in to the snow, and that’s to name just a few of the creatures.
And now Indigo’s parents have sent another Monster Mail delivery to Indigo and Quigley. But this time, the box is empty, and the escaped creature is running rampage around the house. The race is on to catch the creature before it’s too late …
Welcome to 47 Jellybean Crescent, where the weird, wonderful and whimsical creatures that bring mischief and mayhem into Indigo Wilde and her brother Quigley’s, life live with their adopted mythical menagerie from the Unknown Wilderness.
Bright, bold storytelling immerses us in a madcap world slap bang in the middle of an ordinary beige street, where the local Neighbourhood Watch Warden is lurking ready to catch Indigo out at every turn. As one disaster leads to another, we see Indigo become ever more determined to keep her home and menagerie safe from prying eyes.
Stunning full colour illustrations are included throughout this wonderful, whimsical story, bringing the magical creatures to life. There are even pages from the Abracadarium, the adventuring notes from indigo’s great-great-great grandmother detailing even more astonishing discoveries.
