This is a magical adventure in which a drab landscape is transformed into a place of beauty and delight. Ruby’s playground is rundown; nothing works except for one swing for which there is always a long queue. One day, Ruby is given a magic ice lolly. When she plants its stick, a multi-coloured shoot appears and grows and grows and grows…Soon Ruby is off and away sweeping up her friends on a roller coaster adventure. Luckily, the magic lasts and her playground is transformed for good!
