But Thomas has an escape route - he sees incredible things that no one else notices - like tropical fish swimming in the canal and frogs leaping through the letterbox.

Then Thomas meets Mrs Van Amersfoot, a woman full of rebellious spirit who recognises something similar in her new young friend. And in the fight against his father, Thomas's uniqueness - and the extraordinary power of his imagination - are the biggest weapons he has...
