'Penny has just moved to Australia from China. She can hardly speak English. She doesn't know anyone. And horrible cousin Betty is determined to make life at her new school totally miserable. Penny retreats to the art room and her passion: drawing. But there she makes an unusual friend: Mr Whitehorse, who is deaf. And her grandmother gives her a magic Chinese pouch. Now Penny has just one wish to make things right.'
