All three stories in this collection deal with young children at a crisis in their lives. Maxy's mum is pregnant and has been taken into hospital with complications; Rose's family life has suddenly become difficult and different and she blames herself; and Lolly's mother has died and she and her grandparents are finding life very hard. Despite their difficulties, all three children eventually find strength and confidence through caring for animals on their farms.
