Abstract:

There's never a good time to be orphaned and abandoned ... but particularly not when you are twelve years of age, and it's the Great Depression. In 1928, the McAllisters leave their daughter Addie at the Emu Swamp Children's Home, fully intending to return and collect her. Coming from a family theatrical background, Addie is a talented actor and singer, but unbeknownst to her the villainous theatrical agent Scrimshaw has heard Addie sing. Scrimshaw now wants to add her to his next money-making venture, but when he turns up at Emu Swamp to collect his prize, Scrimshaw finds she's run away. Together with Macbeth, her Shakespeare-quoting cockatiel, Addie is about to embark on an adventure of a lifetime.
