Thursday’s child – Sonya Hartnett

Harper Flute believes that her younger brother Tin, with his uncanny ability to dig, was born to burrow. While their family struggles to survive on the hot dusty land, the silent and elusive little Tin begins to escape underground, tunneling beneath their tiny shanty, disappearing into a mysterious labyrinth that takes him further and further from his family. Set during the long, hungry years of the Great Depression, this is a story of how a family copes with poverty and heartbreak.
