Publisher: Chicken House

Peters has dreamt up a surreal world which exists many centuries in the future, in the roots of the earth and many miles above it.

When the earth becomes uninhabitable because of pollution, various societies escape into distant areas, including the upper branches of a tree world. Ark, a Dendran, inhabits the odiferous depths of its plumbing system, together with the aptly named Mucum, who becomes his friend and ally as they fight to escape enemies and restore peace to their world.

A rich vein of humour, and an inspired use of pun will engage tweenaged readers, and lightens the often violent events of Arborium and Ravenwood. Friendship, loyalty and family relationships emerge as ultimate truths in a dangerous world.
