Pitch

Summary

12-year-old Buttons McGinty has been shipped off to Ranktwerp Island Education Fortress for Gifted Lame Unruly Minors, aka RIEFGLUM, a boarding school somewhere near New Zealand.
His parents are missing under strange circumstances, and there are baddies and a bigfoot on the prowl.
The book is set out like an actual notebook – there’s scribbles and doodles, morse code to crack – all drawn by Darby himself.
