167 pages. ‘We’re the perfect team,’ Petie boasts to Timkin. ‘Together we can do anything.’ But can they? The Red King controls his forest kingdom not just by force of arms, but by spreading disease. All who question his authority are infected with the deadly red fever. Who would dare oppose such a man? Only a tiny band of travelling entertainers - a magician, an acrobat, a monkey, and a bear... How could so unlikely a group possibly challenge the Red King in his stronghold? How could they hope to survive, let alone win? This book was shortlisted for the 1990 Australian Children’s Book of the Year Award, and was joint runner-up in the 1990 South Australian Festival Awards for Literature.
