Book description
In the final title of the Seddon Street Gang Series, the gang find an island they call their own and build a fort, only to be attacked by their arch rivals, the Milk Street Gang. A momentous clash, featuring rotten eggs, lots of smoke and big bangs rounds off the trilogy in vintage Lasenby style.
This is the classic trilogy of New Zealand junior fiction, following the exploits of a group of kids (the Seddon Street Gang) and their life in a rural township during the Depression. Heart-warming, funny and wise, these books have drawn fans in their thousands. 'Dead Man's Head', 'The Waterfall' and 'The Battle of Pook Island' have all three been finalists in the New Zealand Children's Book Awards, and two have taken out the ultimate prize. Critics are unanimous that this is a trilogy of the highest quality.
