The Snow Goose– This is the story of a friendship
between Philip Rhayader, an artist living a solitary life in an abandoned
lighthouse in the marshlands of Essex, because of his disabilities, and a young
local girl called Fritha. The Snowgoose who was wounded by gunshot
and many miles from home is found by Fritha and the bird is nursed back to
flight and revisits the lighthouse in its migration for several years. The
friendship between Fritha and Rhayader blossoms as they come to love the
Snowgoose. The three become inseparable. As Fritha grows up,
Rhayader and his small sailboat eventually are lost in the Dunkirk
evacuation, having saved hundreds of men. The bird, which was with
Rhayader returns briefly to the grown Fritha on the marshes. She realises
that this is a sign of Rhayader’s soul taking farewell of her; and
recognises that she has come to love him.
The Fairy Doll– The story of the ‘Fairy Doll’ and her beloved owner begins in the world famous Doll House. The elderly shop owner is greeted by many wealthy and sophisticated buyers all wanting to own one of the famous mechanical dancing dolls. The amazing dolls range from Spanish Dancers, Traditional Japanese to the cheeky Court Jesters.

Watching all the beautiful dolls, with the help of their special leader Dolls, find their forever family is such a beautiful story. All the little shoppers leave the Doll House having found their new favorite doll and making a few new friends along the way.
