    See Inside


    Harold Philip Snipperpot is turning seven years old. He’s never had a real birthday party. His parents are too grumpy. But this year is going to be different. Thanks to an amazing man named Mr Ponzio, something incredible is going to happen on Harold’s birthday – and it’s going to be absolutely extraordinary.
