Mrs. Crinkley-Wrinkley's Recipe for Disaster!

Mrs. Crinkley-Wrinkley doesn't like me. She doesn't like you, either. I don't think she even likes herself very much. And she definitely doesn't like the smelly rubbish dump in her front garden! In fact, Mrs. Crinkley-Wrinkley hates everyone and everything except her great-great-great granddaughter, Harmony. Today, Mrs. Crinkley-Wrinkley wants to make a birthday cake for Harmony and she wants to do it all by herself. She doesn't need any help, from anyone. Especially not you.


Can you help Mrs. Crinkley-Wrinkley to realise how special she is, and turn this recipe for disaster into a real recipe for harmony?



''You're not rubbish. You're amazing!"

Hilarious, messy and touching, join Mrs. Crinkley-Wrinkley today as she discovers how much brighter life can be when we work together and treat ourselves and others with respect.
