Pearlie was having a busy day looking after the park when a ladybird appeared with a message in its little bag. The message scroll, decorated with scarlet tassels and written on silvery paper, said: 'Her Majesty Queen Emerald - most magical monarch of Fairyland - will visit Jubilee Park today at dusk for a very important announcement.' How exciting! And, the ladybird said that Queen Emerald wanted to have supper with Pearlie in her famous pink shell. Even more magical! When Opal heard about the visit she guessed that the queen planned to crown Pearlie FAIRY of the YEAR. But, of course, the naughty rats and jealous Sapphire heard about the visit and plotted to make as much trouble as possible. And they certainly did! -- Publisher description.

The first in the Corner House series, set in a Lyons Corner House in London on the brink of the Second World War. When cousins Jo and Phyl decide to become Lyons Corner House waitresses, or 'Nippies', as they are known for their speedy service, they have no idea how their lives are about to change. They are whisked from family life in Woolwich to digs in London; they are transported from a factory and a grocer's shop to the wonderful dining rooms of Lyons, Marble Arch, and they swap their old overalls for the smart uniforms of the Corner House girls. Jo and Phyl settle in and make friends with both waitresses and customers. There are boyfriends, lovers and fiancés, friendship and romance, but as the Second World War becomes increasingly imminent, the future of these men and women seems more and more uncertain.
