Where would you find talking snails, fighting queens, Welsh witches and winter sunflowers? In stories, of course, and that’s why Juliet loves them. On a holiday in France, Juliet hears lots of stories — from her grandmother and from the toymaker who sells wind-up animals on the quayside. Juliet wants to be a storyteller too, and when she embarks on a mission to rescue the little trout in the restaurant fish tank, she begins an adventure which turns into her very own story.
