“Lorina had to write about “A Special Place”, and the Castle had come into her mind the moment Mr Blair had set the subject.”
This adventurous and humorous tale begins with the young and inquisitive Lorina who’s making her way to the Castle on top of the hill. But what started out as an exciting trip soon turns into a quest to try and save the green people, the ‘Outsiders’ who are dying from starvation and air pollution. Lorina must go in the Castle and seek help from the ‘Insiders’ who are actually all animals. There are mechangaroos, undertigers, haredressers and even osteopythons but the ones in charge are the likes of The Piggident, Mr Hogg and The Piggy Banker… Being pigs, it’s not hard to imagine what a battle Lorina will have with them!
