The CD version of the story of a small girl who one day finds she can lift something as big as a bus. The first of an enchanting series about children empowered by magical gifts. A story of enormous charm, with a tiny, modest and sensible heroine.
Josie Jenkins, aged eight and three quarters, can do a few tricks, but she astonishes herself and everyone else when she finds she can lift a table, a car and even a bus with no effort at all. Josie becomes famous, and Mr Two Suit sweeps in with a contract and swoops the whole family off to New York. How Josie copes with fame and fortune, and with the loss of it when she wakes up one day to find she can't do her trick any more, makes a story of enormous charm, with a tiny, modest and sensible heroine you have to cheer for.
