A Present for Paul

Written by Bernard Ashley

Illustrated by David Mitchell

A Present for Paul Synopsis

Pleasure wants to buy her baby brother a present but when she lets go of her dad's hand in the busy market, suddenly she can't see him anywhere. Where has her dad gone? Pleasure's baby brother is teething and he just cries and cried all day. Pleasure wants to buy him a present to make him happy and she gets her chance when she goes to the market with her dad. Pleasure loves going to the market with all the brightly coloured stalls. While her dad is buying fish, Pleasure spots a toy stall and she lets go of Dad's hand for just one minute... Suddenly she can't see her dad at all, he has completely disappeared and Pleasure is surrounded by stangers hurrying here and there. But it isn't long before she sees her dad through the crowd and he helps her buy the best ever present for Paul.
