Chaos strikes after a trip to the circus, and the castle is suddenly filled with thieves, bunnies, and lethal cabbages, in the fifth quirky mystery by Blue Peter award-winning team Marcus Sedgwick and Pete Williamson.

Join the wonderfully weird Otherhand family and their faithful guardian, Edgar the raven, and discover the dark secrets of Castle Otherhand. A trip to the circus has far-reaching consequences for the Otherhands when Fellah goes missing. Before long the Castle is plagued by a duck, a suspect fortune teller, and several cartloads of lethal cabbages.

The family is preoccupied: Valevine is busy inventing a cabbage-counting machine; Minty is waiting to hear the secrets of the universe; and Solstice has discovered that Cudweed is concealing three hundred and forty-two rabbits in his bedroom.

When chaos strikes and thieves infiltrate the Castle, it falls to Edgar to extract his family from a very fluffy predicament.
Edgar, the 'self-appointed guardian and saviour of Otherhand Castle' is a wonderful creation: vain, pompous and pleased with himself, he narrates the story of FLOOD AND FANG with wit.
