Description: "When Betsey decides to have a HELP THE WORLD day she never imagines how difficult it will be. No one seems to want her help. But then, just as she is about to give up altogether, she hears a faint cry, ‘Help…oh please help me…’ Someone does need her help, very badly indeed! Four delightfully warm and funny stories set in the Caribbean."
Numerous b&w illustrations throughout.
