A great feel good story

Mr Skip is a great story, in which a kind and loving little girl's dreams come true. Her friendship for Mr Skip, a magical gnome, is rewarded in the most unimaginable ways. A tale of love, faith and friendship that teaches those on top of the world not to scoff and those who feel at the bottom never to stop believing and hoping that things can change for the better! Narrator is a fabulous story teller who keeps you engaged and interested.
