ssisted by Gracie Phipps, the search for Charlie (the donkey) is on. The two girls soon learn that the dead man's missing cart also carried a very special golden box. Entering an adult world they may not be entirely able to cope with, the two children discover that the mysterious container may turn out to be a Pandora's box.
nne Perry's six previous holiday novels have been quite memorable and

is as intriguing as its predecessors.
