Two siblings' family life is threatened by the duel misfortunes of their father's shock redundancy and Dad's inheritance of a dilapidated old house in Devon. But hope comes in the unlikeliest form! When cheeky die-hard Londoner Mia Fishlock (11) and her adorably violent little brother, Kaz, discover the decrepit washing machine in their spooky new home has magic power, granting wish after wish, they delightedly rename the washing machine the Wishing Machine! But, with magic power comes great responsibility. As does much screwball potential for the wishes to go horribly wrong.
