A normal day in the park turns out to be full of surprises!

Clara has gone to the park, but there’s nobody to play with. She finds an umbrella on the ground and does a good deed by putting it on a bench. The umbrella says ‘thank you’ and invites Clara to make a wish. So unfolds a magical chain of events featuring a new friend, an elephant, musical butterflies and a naughty fox who learns his lesson.

An amusing and magical way to introduce themes of empathy, choice-making and citizenship to the youngest readers.
