Leyla doesn't think staying at the farm will be as much fun as their usual summer holiday by the sea, but she likes the black and white dog waiting on the steps and all the cicadas singing in the summer heat. Then Dad shows her the special, secret place hidden deep in the bush up the back of the farm... Warm and funny, Uncle Vic's Farm is a wonderful summer story that will appeal to young and old alike.
