Description
Great Aunt Minty seems the wrong person to look after nine-year-old Olivia and her demanding five-year-old sister, Nellie, in the wake of their mother's death. She's white-haired and creaky, and knows almost nothing about children. All she knows about is her big horseshoe-shaped garden, which is so wild and overgrown, the sisters try to avoid it! Then a mysterious blue teacup turns up in the dirt, and Olivia finds an old story about a party of children transformed into flowers by a fairy spell. Only someone discovering the lost children's eight cups can bring them back. Now, the two sisters know what they must do.Janet Taylor Lisle lights up the shadowy borderland between reality and fantasy in this enchanting story of two sisters who, in discovering the lost children, find their truest selves.
