After a blunder involving OAPs, MRSA and mint humbugs, chirpy City Boy Harry is banished to the country by his boss and told to turn a village nursery into a money-making machine... or face the sack.

There he comes head to head with Pen, "a Sergeant Major in a pastel anorak" who used to run the nursery before her husband sold it and ran off to South America with a stripper.
