The Playgroup book giveaway

The PlaygroupGemma Merryfield can't wait to take over the running of Puddleducks Playgroup. But the arrival of the new head of the infant school, Joe Balls, soon tempers her enjoyment. Ex-banker Joe has been employed to bring the school back up to scratch, and that includes interfering with Gemma and her playgroup. Gemma adores her unruly group of children, and she can even find affection for the parents, but Joe's interference is the last thing she needs.

Meanwhile, Nancy is in turmoil. Her only son has just started playgroup and her husband has taken a temporary posting to Vietnam. What on earth is she meant to do now? Does she have the strength to find herself again, and maybe make some friends along the way?

Little do any of them realise what a tumultuous term it is going to be...
