Pull Out all the Stops!

Publisher: Oxford University Press

When a freak accident cripples her father and addles her mother's brain and an outbreak of diphtheria makes it too dangerous to stay in town, Cissy Sissney and her friends are despatched to a place of safety in the company of their straight-laced schoolteacher.

Where they end up, drifting on a rusting steamboat in the swell of a flooded and treacherous Missouri river in the company of a band of travelling players, could hardly be regarded as safe but is certainly entertaining and gives rise to more adventures than any one person should have in a lifetime.

Another original and enthralling tale from an epic storyteller.
