Dacked is about the adventures of Fergus Kipper, his friends and his family, written in five short stories. The topics are surfing, water-skiing (with a mad driver!), a contest between two fishermen to see who can catch a legendary fish, getting stuck (finger only) in a miniature giant clam and a family holiday that goes absolutely haywire.

The book has a strong humorous side, featuring events such as the discovery and use of an old twin-fin surfboard, a water-skiing adventure that turns into a game of chicken with a catamaran, a covert operation to find a ‘secret’ fishing place, being attacked by a giant clam and ending up in all sorts of trouble at a family holiday near Christmas.
