Trouble in Toadpool




A hilarious tale of family fun from multi award-winning author Anne Fine.

Bliss! A lovely, quiet, nothing-to-do and nothing-on-the-calendar Sunday . . .

Well, that's until bossy Aunt Susan - an unstoppable force - is on the phone insisting that Harry and his family come down to help her a local event she's promised to organise: the Great Toadpool Show.

It means swinging from a trapeze. Or walking on stilts. Or riding a unicycle . . . And that's not counting the fortune-telling tent, the tombola, or the choir singalong.

Aunt Susan has no idea of the mayhem she's about to unleash.
