In this monstrously funny, Roald Dahl-esque adventure, a kid comes face-to-face with his own very strange demons. When eleven-year-old Nelson''s beloved big sister goes missing, he''s devastated. Nelson is not great at making friends and his sister is the only person he can talk to. When his parents join the search party, they leave Nelson in the care of his mad uncle Pogo, a plumber working at St. Paul''s Cathedral.
