‘Absolutely enchanting and absorbing… pulling this too-analytical mind back into my own childhood to recapture the marvels and ‘reality’ of healthy imagining, an uplifting and enriching experience for the soul’.

Chautauqua Radio, Des Moines, USA


Oslo Rogers has a very fun mum called Ruthy, and lives in a very fun town called Mellingong. But now a very unfun problem (called a big approaching storm) is forcing everyone to head for The Clondike, the big town hall on the hill.

And they can only take a few important things each: ‘love luggage’, Ruthy calls it. And she’s a milk-lady, and owns a milk-float, and those can hold lots of love luggage… if you pack them right.

So Oslo sets out to help the people of Mellingong, and to discover the things they love the most – the things you would save from a storm.
