A charming tale of community, making new connections and lending a helping hand, from a successful author and illustrator pairing.
When the village wires get crossed after a storm, there’s a lot of confusion and plenty of missed connections. Margaret can’t run her summer fair, Jai can’t speak to Aditi, and Jamie is rather happy because no one can tell his mum how much trouble he’s in! Can the villagers learn to love their neighbours and could the great telephone mix-up really be a blessing in disguise?
A charming, funny, family adventure bursting with wonderful characters.
