Vinayaki arrives at her new home with a small suitcase and a bad case of the jitters.
Gordon the perfect host, receives her with cake, a kind paw pat, and a spot of Scottish dancing. Pierre, Baby Kicks and Harriet welcome her to the Travelling Company of Wonder Rags with a curtsy, excited stamping and a cry of joy. Woohoo!
But Vinayaki is scared. She’s going to hospital tomorrow and it’s her first time.
A story about change, identity, cake, tears, more cake, questions, suspense, laughter and the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
