When Maya and her family move to the countryside, they are intrigued to find a house sprite living in their new home. This unwanted resident, which identifies itself as a Brownie, gets very upset when it realizes it won't be getting its bowl of porridge, which Brownies expect to receive in exchange for doing the housekeeping. As the furious creature wreaks havoc on the household, will Maya and her family find a way to resolve this situation, or will they have to leave their new home?A delightful story of magic and fantasy, Che Golden's The Porridge Plot is also a touching portrayal of family life, which emphasizes the importance of love and togetherness.
-The Porridge Plot goes beyond the usual magical fairy story as it deals with themes of family relationships, which I found very touching.- - Elisabetta Minervini, Publisher
