Description - Whirlwind: the Grimstones 3 by Asphyxia

Hello, I'm Martha Grimstone, and I've inherited my father's gift for music. I can play notes that will bring sunshine, breezes and rain, and send clouds scudding across the sky. But I can't turn back a storm.

If only I can convince Grandpa Grimstone that I can be trusted to leave the valley, I know just the place where I can learn more - but after my latest catastrophe there seems little hope of that. Perhaps Tillipilli and Ziphwort will help me.

The Grimstones: Whirlwind is a gothic fairytale about a whirlwind that refuses to be stomped on, two feisty Angora rabbits, and a disaster of exponential proportions that could be woven into something magnificent.

'I LOVE the Grimstones. Martha is the perfect heroine for little (and big) girls who find that a pen and a trusty diary are the best way to make sense of a crazy world.' LISA FORREST (Australian Olympian + author)

Author Biography - Asphyxia

Asphyxia is a circus performer turned puppeteer, and a writer. She is also Deaf. Her name is unusual, but she is an unusual person! Asphyxia grew up in Melbourne surrounded by an unruly mob of brothers, sisters and cousins. As one of the eldest, she took it upon herself to direct everyone in elaborate games about witches, faeries, pixies, goblins and evil characters. She wrote her first book at twelve and entered it in the St Kilda Writers' Festival competition where it won first prize. Since then, she has been a ballerina, a circus performer, a puppeteer, and a creator of her own theatrical productions, where she tells stories physically and with sign language. The Grimstones - Hatched and Mortimer Revealed have toured around Australia and overseas to great acclaim. The Grimstones books are based on these shows.
