Product description

A ragdoll, a postcard from Marrakech, a rainbow-stripe hat, a dreamcatcher, a silver necklace with a pink stone in… Every birthday brings a special gift from Dizzy’s mum. Dizzy has faithfully kept everything, every gift and card from the mother who left when she was small. But this year is different. This year’s present is Mum herself, in person. Tanned and skinny, with loads of earrings and a huge smile, Storm is a human whirlwind… and she whisks Dizzy away for a summer that puts her whole world in a spin.

    Dizzy’s Mum never forgets her daughter’s birthday, even if she does not live with Dizzy anymore! There is rag dolls, cards, all sorts of gifts she sends and Dizzy always keeps them. But this year is way different, Dizzy’s birthday present is her mum herself, inviting her to spend a summer with her. Dizzy accepts, of course. But is her Dad OK with it?....

    This book was amazing. Storm, Dizzy’s mum, flies into her world and takes her away for a magical summer. But how will it end?
