Olanna's Big Day

There’s great excitement when the school band is chosen to march in the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. Olanna practises really hard on her tin whistle. At last the big day arrives and they line up with the stilt-walkers, the bagpipers, the dancing leprechauns. Then disaster strikes. But Olanna – and her granny back in Nigeria – saves the day!
