What do a pirate who likes to play knucklebones, and a shopkeeper who’s frightened of witches, have in common?

Not much.

But if you throw in a one-legged seagull, a freckly shop assistant, and some real witches as well, you’ve got the ingredients for a funny, unexpected story – and a surprisingly happy ending for everyone.

Well, almost everyone.

Marmaduke Nepskin has authored many stories for children. His characters are notably quirky and mischievous – perhaps like the writer himself, who once said that his love of cats and penchant for hats meant he was almost destined to write for children! Duke, as he is known those close to him, lives in darkest Huia, Aotearoa/New Zealand. He has a three-legged cat and guinea pigs – and wishes he had a capybara.


From the moment she could crawl, Imogen was drawing things, mostly on her parent’s books. So, it seems fitting that she’s doing it again, albeit with her dad’s blessing this time. Sometimes known as the ‘Gypsy Elf,’ Imogen occasionally resides in darkest Huia, and other wild parts of Aotearoa/New Zealand.
