Danni has discovered she has a secret talent: she doesn't just understand animals - she can become them too! A unique and inventive story by an award-winning writer.
When Danni chooses to spend the school holidays with her godmother, Claire, she thinks she will find a kindred spirit. She doesn't bank on meeting the mysterious Finlay Black, or Claire being on the look-out for the Panther of Argyll, the legendary beast which supposedly roams the woods around her cottage.
And she doesn't bank on discovering that she has the 'animal spirit'. This rare and unique ability not only gives Danni a special empathetic link with animals - but the ability to become them!
But there is a price for letting the animal within loose.
Panthers are wild, primal, strong . . . and most of all, they are free. So why would Danni remain human when all of this is within her grasp?
