Synopsis

Three Days with Jim by Kaye Umansky

Children who enjoyed Pass the Jam, Jim, You Can Swim, Jim and Need a Trim, Jim when they were younger will be delighted to see that Jim and all his friends are back in three new stories for older readers. In Jim at the Fair, Jim wins a goldfish, but on the way home the bag splits and it looks like it could be curtains for Norman. Luckily Jim is in his firefighters outfit - his helmet saves the day as a temporary bowl. In Madame Zuleka, Jim visits a fortune teller, who predicts he is about to embark on a thrilling adventure...and funnily enough she is right! In Jim in the Snow, Jim and friends have lots of fun making snowpeople and having snowball fights, but later at home, Jim is devastated to discover he has lost his special firefighter watch. Will he ever find it in a snow white world?
