The second of Allan Ahlberg's mini-masterpieces for early readers. One lucky morning Mrs Gaskitt opens the post and finds she's won a prize! Next she kisses the postman!

Meanwhile, Gus and Gloria get a new teacher, Mrs Plum, with silvery hair, a big smile and a huge suitcase, who's ever so helpful when things start to go missing in the classroom.
