Three enchanting stories about children discovering secret gifts: Ruby keeps getting smaller and smaller, but still shows how a girl tiny enough to fit in a handbag can still be clever and brave. Billy finds out his magic moneybox can crack a safe, solve a kidnapping and help him to get to know his father again. Meanwhile chubby Timmy Twinkle gets in shape and realises he's a master on the football field - a story of a child whose unhappiness is dispelled by his hidden talent.
