The little girl is worried. In her parents' inn down the valley all the talk has been of the danger of landslides, and it has not stopped raining for days. At school, the priest has started telling her the story of the Great Flood. When the baby is born and the time comes for her to go home, Katharina, filled with an increasing and inexplicable sense of doom, refuses to leave. Soon afterwards she hears a deafening thunderclap. She looks down the valley: a huge chunk of the mountainside is hurtling towards her home.

Book 1 in the fantastic four-book series about taking risks and flying high. A unique collaboration from children's book legend Paul Jennings and brilliant cartoonist Andrew Weldon.
Ricky is an ordinary boy, who dreams of being famous. And he has a secret that might just help him realise his dream. Because Ricky can fly. Truly. He can really fly. But there's a hitch. He can only fly when absolutely no one is looking. If a person, an animal or a bird sees him while he's flying, he will fall out of the sky and almost certainly die. But Ricky is desperate. Will he risk flying in public, just for a shot at fame?
The first two stories in a brilliant series presented in words and pictures by master story tellers Paul Jennings and Andrew Weldon. Don't Look Now will have readers laughing out loud at Ricky and his hilarious adventures - on and off the ground.
