Publisher's Summary

Lily isn't home alone - but she sort of wishes she was; looking after her three younger siblings is a lot of responsibility.

When Mum goes off on holiday with her new boyfriend and her stepdad fails to show up, Lily is determined to keep the family together and show they can cope without any grown-ups. But taking care of six-year-old twins, her three-year-old sister and the family's flat feels overwhelming and Lily is worried that school or social services might discover their situation and break up the family.

What could be better than to take all the little ones for a camping adventure in the park? Plenty of space to run about, no carpet to vacuum, and surely no chance anyone will guess they're there ...

    "Loved Lily !"

    My daughter loved Lily's antics - her predicament was made to feel really real and we could just imagine how she felt. We particularly liked the idea of staying in the hollow tree in the park and loved Lily's resourcefulness in feeding and looking after her siblings. The story had a serious note as well and made my daughter feel that she was lucky to live in a normal family with parents who loved her.
