In The Secret Remedy Book, Lolly goes to stay with her aunt, on her own, for a whole month. It is something that she has been wanting to do for a very long time. But after her parents drive away, she begins to feel sad and homesick. Her lovely Aunt Zep knows just why to do. Together they search for The Secret Remedy book and set about completing each remedy in the book before the first hoot of the owl.
After reading this book, I wanted to create a Secret Remedy book just like the one that Lolly and Aunt Zepp use. Full of good remedies such drinking apple juice so fresh that you could taste the blossoms of the apples, take a walk as far as you can to see something you've never noticed before and feeding a wild thing.
