Birthday parties are meant to be happy occasions! But not when you’ve got Lady Grenford in the family! She tried to ruin Miss Emily’s birthday for everyone and get her married off to her grandson. Can you imagine? Emily’s far too young and too clever to get married, especially to someone as horrid as that!
Thank goodness me and my friends did our best to make everything right. We worked as a team and it paid off. Afterwards, Gideon and I said it was just like being back in the Foundling Hospital and out-witting Matron. But this time, it was a real family we were fighting for. And it seems to have been worth it. After they’d cut the birthday cake, Mrs Calendar smiled at me and thanked me for a lovely day. She didn’t need to say anymore – but I knew what she meant. I’d helped her and she appreciated it!
But best of all, now Lady Grenford and Brody are gone, the Calendars can be a happy family once again – and I knew I’d helped bring them together. To me, that’s better than any present, ever!
