Ill. by Tracey Gibbs and Sally Morgan. Waarda Series. Fremantle Press, 2013 ISBN 9781922089359.
Recommended for Year 3. This is story set in the north of Western Australia where Lilli is spending the school holidays with her Grandmother. Lilli is looking forward to leaving the city and being with her extended family in her home country and being reunited with Shadow. Shadow lived in the Mango tree at the bottom of the garden, but his home had been taken over by someone called Glog. Glog had been evicted from his home in a mangrove tree which had been cut down to make room for a jetty. The story tells how Lilli and Nan solve the problem.
