Poppy’s father disappeared in Australia when she was five years old. Six years later, she is convinced he is still alive and will return home one day.
When her mother starts going out with Jonathan, Poppy becomes obsessed with finding her father. She neglects her school work, putting her dream of joining her friend Daisy in a top local school in serious jeopardy.
When Poppy sees Daisy’s grandmother swing a ring on a ribbon to determine the sex of an unborn child, Poppy is powerfully drawn to the craft of dowsing, thinking that it will help her find her father.
She develops magical powers while dowsing and finds a missing letter from their long-dead mother that reconciles Jonathan with his sullen son Oliver and snooty daughter Jessica.
After Oliver saves Poppy from being run over, they realise they have a common interest in preventing Jonathan from marrying Poppy’s mother, and decide that getting Poppy’s father back would be the best solution.
But how can they get Poppy to Australia to find him? Will they succeed? Is he still alive? Download Poppy’s Quest and read about their crazy plans and Poppy’s wild adventure. . .

"In Poppy, Rosemary Wilkie has created a loveable and strong-willed heroine who totally engages the reader in her engrossing adventures. If I had a pendulum that answered my questions, I know it would signal a large popular support for this fast-moving, well-written and thoroughly enjoyable book. Does Poppy's pendulum (pendle) guide her to the truth she seeks? Far be it from me to spoil the story, you will have to follow all the unexpected twists and turns to find out. The one thing I can guarantee is your enjoyment from start to finish." Mary Spain

“I so enjoyed reading it. It is always exciting and challenging to the imagination, and does not insult the intelligence of any children. I feel that there is so much food for thought, and finding the deeper meaning behind the words. You take us on a journey of mystery and spiritual adventures, and there is always a moral behind it all. The characters always come to life and are very believable and convincing. Long may you continue to write books for us children to read.” Ann E Barter

“It was in a state of eager anticipation that I reached the end of Poppy’s Quest. The style is captivating to my imagination and I have only admiration for the way it weaves all the characters together into a whole story. The delicacy with which it handles family emotional disturbance when remarriage and kids are at the centre of the plot is very fine. Poppy’s distress is understandable and her mother’s concerned and caring yet conflicted response to her daughter’s attitude quite credible.” Bev Cameron

"Delightful story. I loved the information about dowsing and the idea that anyone can learn to do it." Sylvia Clare.,( author of Trusting Your Intuition).
