Zadi is part zombie, part fairy with a little bit of robot, which makes her a misfit monster.
The Jumble Sale is a dystopian steampunk adventure for children, middle-grade young readers and even teens who enjoy paranormal fantasy and science fiction. Our robotic zombie heroine and her gang of fantastical misfit monsters are part of a community where helping each other and working together for the common good, is not always easy with conflicting individual needs. But with the heroine’s leadership, they learn to overcome their differences and help each other.
Throughout the fantasy adventure there is an emphasis on creative and innovative thinking with how items are recycled or upcycled. This brings in an important environmental focus to the story, and modelling a growing role for young people to be part of in our society.
This fun and quirky Sci-Fi adventure is an unusual sometimes spooky read with strong morals that address relevant environmental issues, and the importance of teamwork.
