What happens when a small girl finds she can lift a bus in one hand? A very funny story by award-winning author Sally Gardner, in her MAGICAL CHILDREN series.

Josie Jenkins, aged eight and three-quarters, astonishes herself and everyone else when she finds she can lift a table, a car and even a bus with no effort at all. Josie becomes famous, and Mr Two Suit sweeps in with a contract and swoops the whole family off to New York. How Josie copes with fame and fortune, and with the loss of it when she wakes up one day to find she can’t do her trick any more, makes a very entertaining story for young readers.
