'This is the second book in a series about nine-year-old Harriet Bright. It contains three hilarious stories about Harriet and her best friend, Melly Fanshawe, and has lovely illustrations throughout.

'"Talent Take Two": Mr Beatty, the general store owner, is holding the annual neighbourhood talent quest. Harriet and her best friend Melly want to enter it. But first they have to find their 'talent' and they only have one week to do it!' (From the publisher's website.)
