There were three things that marked out Lucy Willow as different. The first was that she lived on a train. The second was that she had a snail named Ernest as a pet. And the third, the most important of all, was that she had green fingers.It's Lucy's green fingers that save the day when Silverboots McCoy, the famous footballer, and his girlfriend, Blossom B, order flowers for their wedding -- for Ricky Sparks, who runs the rival garden centre, will stop at nothing to get the contract for himself.Longer and fuller than the Magical Children books, Lucy Willow has all of Sally Gardner's soaring imagination, enchanting humour, and great heart, and is rich in scenes and characters that readers will adore and always remember.
