Gerrie Radlof se gewilde Oloff die Seerowerreeks is oorspronklik tussen 1957 en 1961 uitgegee en het daarna reeds vier uitgawes beleef. Die verhale, wat in die 1740's afspeel aan die Kaap de Goede Hoop en die seewee daarom heen, is verwerk om aan te pas by die moderne taalgebruik en aan te sluit by die hedendaagse tiener, maar niks van die oorspronklike sjarme en spanning het in die verwerking verlore gegaan nie. Ook geskik as leesstof vir Afrikaans tweede taal vir ouer leerlinge.
Billy Sloat and Lydia Lemon don't have much in common, unless you count growing up on the same (wrong) side of the tracks, the lack of a mother, and a persistent loneliness that has inspired creative coping mechanisms. When the lives of these two loners are thrust together, Lydia's cynicism is met with Billy's sincere optimism, and both begin to question their own outlook on life. On top of that, weird happenings including an impossible tornado and an all-consuming fog are cropping up around them - maybe even because of them. With a unique mix of raw emotion, humor, and heart, the surreal plotline pulls readers through an epic exploration of how caring for others makes us vulnerable - and how utterly pointless life would be if we didn't.
