Incredible things occur in the park after the gates are locked, and in the gardens there are things that even Richard Jones, the gardener, has never seen. George Lewis, the park keeper would never guess his pet tortoise has been challenged to race Sally the squirrel across the park. Surely such a thing could happen only in a fable or a fairy story. And what is that funny little toadstool house at the bottom of the Shaw’s garden, complete with door, windows and a chimney? It is certainly very strange that the flowers here always look so bright and colourful. It’s almost as though they are freshly painted while everyone is asleep!
