Michael has just moved into a new home with his family. The house is a mess, his parents are distracted and his brand new baby sister is seriously ill. Scrambling through a rickety garage at the back of the house, he discovers a strange crumpled character with a liking for leftover Chinese takeaways, spiders and Brown Ale. But there is something strange about Skellig as Michael soon finds out.
