All without spending a single, lonely penny.But in another stroke of genius comes an even better solution ... yet it is one that that causes strange things to happen at Grott Hall.Little does Lord Grott know that for all his meanness, there is an equally kind force working against him. And with a bit of luck and a cunning plan, happiness will win.Join author Steve Matthews in this hysterical tale of mischief, talking animals, and mayhem.
