When the parcel arrives for Selina, it causes great excitement. Inside she finds the most beautiful dress and shoes she’s ever seen. Unfortunately it’s war time – and there’s no chance of wearing them before they become too small for her.
But Selina and her cousins have a plan. The plan grows into an event, the event grows bigger and bigger – until even the soldiers from America are involved in the children’s pageant. Everyone has their part to play and Sally gets a chance to dance – but it falls to Selina to have the final word.
