Here is an excerpt from the start of the book:

‘PPTLING!’
You wouldn’t have heard the sound unless you were really listening for it … but if you turned your head the right way, and really, really listened carefully, you would have just been able to make it out over the deep breathing of the two children. Of course, you would have to have been awake and that would have been highly unlikely, because everyone knows that they only came when they are absolutely 110% sure that you are asleep. Being caught was not an option.
Of course even if you had heard the sound, actually seeing one was even harder. They were very fast and very good at hiding. Put it this way, they wouldn’t be your first choice to play hide and seek with.
Needless to say, the two children remained asleep, oblivious to the new arrival in the room. The creature watched them carefully, checking to see that they were truly asleep. She waited a little longer and then slowly unfurled her wings. Then, with a flutter, she was suddenly airborne. Her wings were beating fast, so fast that they made a high pitched whine that could easily be mistaken for a mosquito. As quick as a flash she was hovering over one of the beds. She paused, trying to work out the best way to attack.
