When ten-year-old Jamie Rollings takes up fossil-hunting for a hobby, he stumbles across some exciting discoveries on the nearby estate that lead to new friendships and surprises that make this summer holiday truly special and unforgettable. This traditional children's adventure story is set in an English country village in the days when children played outdoors with their friends all summer long. They seek their own entertainment and excitement in the real world instead of online, and the latest technology they have at their disposal is the fax machine!

Editorial Reviews

"A delightfully traditional book that children and their parents will enjoy. It's very refreshing to be reminded of a time before we had instant mobile and internet communication. If you recall the days when you spent your school summer holidays playing with friends, out all day, having adventures, then I'm sure you'll enjoy this book and the novelty of explaining what a fax machine was!" - Helen Baggott
