About the journey – Bigga, Percy and Annabelle get caught up in an adventure that takes them on a journey up river to rescue Papa Bwa (the father of the forest), defeat Lagahoo (the shape-shifter), and bring ‘Story End’.
Along the way they encounter Mama Glo (the mother of the river), Ananse (the trickster spider-man), Dwens (the lost souls of dead children) and other Caribbean folk characters. They hear folktales and ‘bush’ songs and learn to appreciate, respect and understand the forest and its spirit dwellers.
