The third adventure in this incomparably witty and charming series from award-winning author Katrina Nannestad.
How absolutely splendid! Dust the doorknobs. Polish the silver. Roll out the red carpet. The Queen is coming to Mrs Groves’ Boarding School for Naughty Boys, Talking Animals and Circus Performers for tea! Nothing, absolutely nothing, could possibly spoil this right royal moment.
Except for the return of scheming villain, Pig McKenzie… and the arrival of a strange, harsh woman called Thistlebloom… and the fact that the Inspector of Schools has promised to close the doors of Groves forever if the Queen’s visit does not run smoothly…
Oh deary, deary me! Nothing ever runs smoothly at Groves!
Someone needs to take control. Someone clever, brave and practical. Someone with big ideas and an even bigger heart.
Someone named Olive.
But does our beloved heroine have what it takes, or is this the end of Groves, once and for all?
