The Land of Giant Pineapples
by Judy Rankin and Shayla Gray
The land of giant pineapples is the story of eleven-year-old Shayla Gray, an average girl living on a small farm in Melbourne’s outer suburbs. On Shayla’s eleventh birthday, her fifteen-year-old sister, Willow, admits to seeing some peculiar movement in one of the paddocks around a group of pineapple palm trees they call Plantation Island. After an argument with her father, Willow disappears. Shayla is sure Willow’s disappearance has something to do with the ‘peculiar movement’ and sets out to find her sister and uncover the mystery.
Shayla will have to join forces with an Aboriginal wizard (she doesn’t know exists), use powers (she doesn’t know she has), and enter a world (she doesn’t think is real) in order to rescue Willow and help save the land of giant pineapples.
