An urban story with multi-national characters. Features a community cricket game, street markets. Detailed colour illustrations full of action are highlighted by a triple fold-out page. A birthday party story which makes a great birthday present. Available in hardback with dustjacket or paperback. (Birthday party invitation cards also available).

When Elinor and Frank move into Ramshackle Street, they think it is going to be exciting, living in an old shop full of musty smells and surprise treasures. Frank’s ninth birthday is approaching and Elinor is keen to give him a surprise party but has no one to ask - except the musty old people in the other shops. When they finally come to the party, they all wear different smells and bear special presents. The street now looks forward to a future of Saturday markets and community togetherness.
