Sasha and Puck spread magic—and kindness—in their village

Sasha's father sells magic potions, but the potions don't work. Can Sasha find a way to make the magic happen? When Basil Gentry asks for a cordial cordial, Sasha thinks he wants it for his spoiled sister Sisal. A boarding school headmistress is coming to meet Sisal, but Sisal would rather throw a party for her horse. Can Sasha and Puck convince Sisal to be friendly for one whole day?
