Publisher's Summary

Em adores her funny, glamorous dad – who cares if he's not her real father? He's wonderful to her, and to her little brother Maxie and sister Vita. True to form at Christmas, Dad gives them fantastic presents, including a real emerald ring for his little Princess Em.

Unfortunately he's got another surprise in store – he's leaving them. Will Dad's well-meaning but chaotic attempts to keep seeing Em and the other children help the family come to terms with this new crisis? Or would they be better off with a clean break – just like Em's arm?

My 8-year old daughter loved this

She listened to it on a car journey and was very happy and contented and occasionally even laughed out loud. She enjoyed it so much she wants to listen to it again.

Nice story

well read good narrative for 11-14 I think
as the themes may be a bit tough for a younger reader.
