It’s about a boy’s last childhood summer before beginning the long trek to adulthood is spent with his reclusive dad Hideaway Tom in the wild freedom of South Australia’s Coorong.

Amongst his unlikely friends are the enigmatic Fingerbone Bill and a family of orphaned pelicans - including his favourite, Mr Percival.
