Synopsis

Year 3: Treasure at the Boot-fair by Chris Powling

Cal is helping Mr Jessop on his boot-fair stand. It's a responsible job and Cal is really put to the test when Mr Jessop has to spend some time away, leaving Cal by himself. When the girl with the expensive-looking watch drops by in the hope of making a quick sale, Cal has to think fast. But will he make the right decision?
