A touching story about family life and a boy's birthday treat, from a multi-award-winning storyteller. It's Jack's birthday and his friend Sam is coming round after school for a little party.
It's just Sam and Jack in a small flat, with Jack's mum talking too loudly and getting them to play childish games.
Jack's birthday cake is a homemade shark and doesn't look as good as the huge windmill cake that Sam had for his birthday, nor is there a DJ, treasure hunt or a magician.
But when Sam's mum comes to collect him, Jack realizes just how lucky he is.
