Ten-year old Charley narrates all the craft, colour and chaos of the lead-up to his school's fete in this beautiful picture book. Charley and his friends dive into haunted house construction, web weaving and tarantula making. At home all his family launch into the fete auction too -- even Baby and Ruby the Dog.
Kim Gamble's inimitable illustrations capture every moment of Louise Pfanner's delightful story.
