The Lost Thing

paperback    ISBN 13: 9780734411389 | ISBN 10: 0734411383

The Lost Things is a humorous story about a boy who discovers a bizarre-looking creature whilst out collecting bottle-tops at the beach.
 
Having guessed that it is lost, he tries to find out who owns it or where it belongs, but the problem is met with indifference by everyone else, who barely notice it's presence. Each is unhelpful in their own way; strangers, friends, parents all unwilling to entertain this uninvited interruption to day-to-day life.
 
In spite of his better judgement, the boy feels sorry for this hapless creature, and attempts to find out where it belongs.
