The Painted Tent
Freckled fugitive Smiler is never far from trouble.
After hitching a ride south, Smiler finds his way to North Devon and the estate of the ‘The Duchess’ – a former fairground fortune-teller who now runs a farm. Here, he stays and tends to circus animals housed for the winter.
When a peregrine falcon, Fria, escapes, Smiler must search for ways of helping and recapturing the bird. In doing so, can he solve the problem that has kept him in hiding for so long?
Or does more trouble await?
