Fiona is an eight year old girl. She has got a dad who does the cooking, a mum who earns the money and a sister who is crazy about football. And she has got one heart’s desire: a cat! She would call it Minky and it would sleep in her room and wake her up with its soft paws. But her parents are against it. And even worse: mum and dad argue all the time until one day mum packs her bags and leaves the house. Now Fiona has two heart’s desires.
A story about a child’s hopes, family-desasters, strokes of luck and dreams which finally come true. – Detailed pictures on every page brighten the atmosphere and support the young reader’s understanding.
