“A messy show for messy kids with messy brains”
When Daisy is chosen to look after Mr Twiggy the class hamster, Daisy (and the rest of her class) worry she might lose him. So she’s very glad when best friend Beth decides to stay over to lend a hand. But things don’t quite go to plan…
Can Daisy use the adventures of “The Mess” to find Mr Twiggy and prove everyone wrong?
