Kip of the Mountain

Gourlay, Emma

Kip Boowitt is desperate for a best friend. So when she rescues a tiny creature that looks like a kitten but isn’t a kitten, she names him Buffel and loves him with all her heart.

With a distracted dad and mean kids at school, all Kip wants is someone with two ears and time for her. And Buffel is the best listener. But when he’s kidnapped, there is only one thing to do – go from mountain to sea to get him back.

The astonishing and magical debut novel from Melbourne writer Emma Gourlay.
