The story goes like this. Although it's clearly morning, the sun hasn't risen and the village is in darkness. Normally Little Miss Magic would be able to sort things out but she's lost her wand and left her book of spells with Miss Scatterbrain who, true to her name, can't find it. The action begins in the village square where you have to help Miss Somersault catch fireflies to help brighten up the village so people can see where they're going-this is an arcade-style game that involves clicking on fireflies as they pop up randomly on the screen with the mouse. Then, you go with Miss Scatterbrain back to her house where you use the mouse to search through her kitchen for the lost spell-book (it makes a special sound that will help you) and finally you have to find the happiest Mr Man to recite the spell to bring the sun back. After that, there's still the question of Miss Magic's missing wand which involves finding a bucket, some water, magic paint, Mr Tickle and all sorts of other stuff.
There are two levels of difficulty so it's easy for younger kids to get into, but it's nevertheless complicated enough for the older age groups. And it's charming with it. --Rob Beattie
