The second novel in the much-loved Exiles series and winner of the Smarties Prize.
When Ruth Conroy decides to sponsor a child in Africa, she is unprepared for the difficulties involved in finding £10 a month. So she enlists the help of her sisters - Phoebe, Naomi and Rachel - who are only too eager to dream up hare-brained fund-raising schemes . . .
Undisciplined baby-sitters, unhygienic caterers or fraudulent pavement artists, their hilarious projects never fail to cause chaos and mayhem.
