Life is full of surprises with Auntie Robbo. At eighty-one she can bound over the heather faster than most, and if some consider her mad, to her great-grand-nephew Hector she is the only sane person in the world. When Merlissa Benck Murdoch descends on their household and announces intention of adopting Hector, who could blame Auntie Robbo and Hector creeping off and escaping to Edinburgh on top of a double-decker bus? Alas, Merlissa Benck has an uncanny habit of turning up wherever their travels take them; to a house where Auntie Robbo is governess of four unruly charges, to a lonely glen in the highlands where they are selling buckets from a tinkerís cart, and to their haunted island.
