This novel for young people consists of a fictional first person narrative by Robat - a typical 11-12 year old pupil at Segontium School in Caernarfon in 1969, the year of Prince Charles's visit to the Aberystwyth Urdd Eisteddfod and his investiture as Prince of Wales at Caernarfon Castle - as well as the first moon landing.

Further Information:

It is also a time when Robat grows up in terms of social awareness and personal relationships. It is brought to life through the experiences of Robat and his friends including Philip who is English as well as the involvement of Robat and his sister Megan in protesting in different ways in support of the Welsh language, and against the pomp and pageantry in Caernarfon, resulting in a raised awareness of Welsh history not taught in schools. Robat is typical of his age group and his life consists of his family and friends, his bird watching and drawing hobbies, the local community and school, and brushes with adults in authority as well as teenage growing pains and concerns about the opposite sex.
