Pippa Lieblingstochter

Darling Daughter Pippa

Pippa really has tried everything! She’s used all her powers of persuasion, she’s sulked and thrown tantrums, but nothing has done any good. And it’s all Daddy’s fault! Just because he got the measurements all wrong for the new furniture and the bedroom door won’t close because of it, all he and Mummy talk about now is “moving house”. But Pippa doesn’t want to move. After all, she wasn’t the one who got the measurements wrong! And she definitely doesn’t want to lose her friends at school! – That everything turns out quite differently in the end has mostly to do with a tabby cat and a roof garden full of small trees.
