Life's not much fun when you have no-one to play with! But when a little boy with a big imagination goes into his garden alone, he soon conjures up some playmates and is transported to a magical fantasy world of his own making. The only problem is that each of his playmates seem to tire of the game before he does. Is there anything or anyone with a sense of adventure as strong as his? A beautifully crafted story about the power and wonder of a small child's imagination.
