Barbara was scared and needed to escape. She closed her eyes and did precisely that: she walked somewhere around the corner ... into another time. Barbara was lucky - she met Young Jim who took her out of this strange, frightening city to his home. It was 1932 when Australia was in the grip of the Depression, and Jim lived in a shanty town. Children's Book of the Year Award: Younger Readers, 1995 honour book.
