When Mr Blanket lost his job in the city and couldn't find it again,it seemed like things would never get better. 'I wish,' said Dottie, closing her eyes and trying her hardest not to wobble, 'that I lived on a bright green hilltop!' Suddenly, her wish comes true! Mr Blanket gets a new job in The Middle of Nowhere. Dottie soon finds that The Hilltop is the Middle of Somewhere as she gets to meet Winnie Crisp, Tom Tractor, Blod Evans, the Rowland twins and the Fidgets. And on the Hilltop she doesn't need wishes, because the magic happens on its own.
