Chipo and his little sister Gentle live on Papa Fudu's dumpsite in Rubbish Town, searching for valuable things amongst the rubbish to try to stay alive. Life isn't easy - luckily, Chipo has spirit, courage and lots of imagination! And now, he has a plan... But when Chipo and Gentle are caught with something precious that Papa Fudu wants for himself, they have to think quick, move fast. Suddenly they're on the run... Along with their friend Dede and their loyal dog, Mouse, Chipo and Gentle set off on a dangerous and exciting journey to find a safe place to call home - meeting a cast of extraordinary characters along the way.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An absorbing, powerful and uplifting story" * Booktrust *
"It is hugely to Davies's credit that she makes these characters live such vibrant lives in the minds of her young readers . . . The action in the narrative is unflagging and fast-paced. The language is convincing . . . I would like to see this book adopted as a primary class text" -- Rebecca Butler * Armadillo Magazine *
"Heartwarming . . . so far removed from anything children here would experience and gives so much to think and talk about, as well as being a page-turning story to boot" * The School Librarian *
