She was wearing red shoes! With silver heels! Elisabeth Devine causes quite a stir on her arrival in the village. No one can understand why the head of a big inner city school would want to come to sleepy little Barton-in-the-Dale, to a primary with more problems than school dinners. And that's not even counting the challenges the mysterious Elisabeth herself will face: a bitter former head teacher, a grumpy caretaker and a duplicitous chair of governors, to name but a few. Then there's the gossip. After all, a woman who would wear red shoes to an interview is obviously capable of anything . . . Warm, funny and poignant, Gervase Phinn's first novel for adults creates a fictional world that's as real as can be. It will delight all his fans, and win him many more.

As the bus pulls up in front of school, Kanouse notices all the fun playground equipment. He can hardly wait for recess!

But it is not until many months later, when Kanouse embarks on an adventure, that he finally discovers the meaning of true friends and receives an unforgettable gift. A Christmas Gift for Kanouse is the delightful tale that relays the importance of family, friendship, and hope as a little mouse learns to accept himself just as he is.
