When the Mayor decides to close down Joey's favourite bookshop in order to build a big superstore, Joey calls upon his friend, Origami Girl, to help.
Origami Girl creates an army out of characters from famous children's books to put a stop to the mayor and the builders before it is too late!
"Foreman delivers us all of the defining ingredients of a ‘radical’ children’s book; this could have been written for the Little Rebels Award with its themes of: capitalism threatening a local community and independent businesses, the complacency of governments in the face of large corporations, the possibilities of people power and local community action."
