The Lovereading4Kids commentWhen Harriet turns nine, her father says, â€œYour aunts would like to hear about that!â€ Harriet had no idea that she had any aunts and suddenly she finds that she has five. Five aunts, all interesting, talented and, above all, very surprising. Harriet Bean is a delightful character and her aunts are simply amazing! The first in a charming mini-series.
The Five Lost Aunts of Harriet Bean by Alexander Mccall SmithOne day, out of the blue, Harriet Bean's dad says to her, 'Your aunts would like to hear about that!' Harriet is shocked - this is the first time she's heard anything about any aunts, and suddenly, she has five of them! Naturally, she's very curious to meet them, especially as her dad has told her that they each have a rather special ability (apart from Aunt Majolica who's just extremely bossy). The trouble is, the family was split up years ago and they all lost touch with one another. Will Harriet be able to reunite her dad with his sisters and enable the family portrait that was started many years ago to finally be completed? She is determined, and starts her quest for the five missing aunts with a trip to the circus.
