I expect you know how boring it can be to stay indoors on rainy days. None of the 5 children meant to set the nursery carpet on fire that wet day. They only wanted to test out their fireworks. The new carpet when it arrives comes with something odd wrapped inside - an enormous glowing egg, and with it the chance for a whole new set of adventures.
