When Laura gets her first letter from her new Australian penfriend, she's delighted. She writes Malcolm a long letter telling him all about herself, but she doesn't receive a reply. At last she gets a letter from Malcolm's sister telling her that Malcolm has gone into hospital for an eye operation - he is nearly completely blind. Laura decides to learn Braille so that she can send him a get-well-soon card and they are soon corresponding in Braille, making their letters private and confidential. Including an information spread about Braille and a Braille sample, this book shows children that having a disability should not be a barrier to friendship, and that communicating in a different way can be rewarding and fun.
