"Suddenly Mary seemed to do everything wrong, no matter how hard she tried; Paul found that being a farmer could be very hard work; and Susan counted the freckles on her nose, with unpredictable results. Emma Brock has a warm and humorous view of the ordinary and extraordinary things that happen to children, and these nine simple but vivid tales will be read and retold again and again."
