An entertaining story from former children's laureate Anne Fine for Egmont's red banana series.
Nicky, Tasha and Joe's mum leaves for work early one day and she leaves instructions for them on a cassette-player - all they have to do is press play! Nicky and Tasha must get themselves ready for school and get baby Joe ready for playgroup without waking Dad! They have to get dressed, make porridge for breakfast and find Joe's toy rabbit. Then they have to creep into Dad's bedroom and set the alarm clock for him. But it is very hard to get ready quietly, especially when your baby brother is crying for his toy rabbit!
