She has planned one last adventure before her time is up and hires the reluctant Davy and George to escort her.

This book sent me on a roller coaster of emotions. Despite shedding tears, I found it to be full of hope as well as being very beautiful and poignant. This is a must read for adults, let alone children!

It's a wonderful story, full of laughter and gasps and the occasional tear - calling a book a future classic can be a cliché, but this one definitely deserves the accolade. Do not, under any circumstances, miss it.
