Description

'Do you want to know what a Min Min is? It's this spooky sort of light. It comes out of the lake on misty nights and tries to get people to follow it.' Bryn and his family have just moved into a new house by the lake. The area is beautiful, teeming with wildlife. But soon there are scars on the landscape where the houses are being built - bulldozers tear at the earth, the sound of machinery rends the air. Once again the Min Min stirs ...And this time, it has chosen Bryn.
