The story is about a girl called Jackie who lives in the City. She loves to crawl in the dumpsters and bring things home from it. She found a garden gnome broken in pieces in a dumpster. It's was her mothers birthday soon , and she thought it would be nice to give her the garden gnome as a gift. She fixed up the garden gnome and called it Mr Skip.
The most interesting thing about Mr Skip is that he comes alive - he can talk but doesn't move. He makes miracles happen. The best part is that she loves horse racing and her Grandma has a pet donkey called Barnaby . My favourite part in the story is when Barnaby wins a race and goes 40 miles per hour.
In the end they lose the €1m race but still get €500,000 euros from a film producer for their story, and can now move to the country and have a pet horse called Skippy.
My favourite character was Mr. Skip.
This book made me laugh in places.
I would give this book 1000 out of 1000, and I recommend it.
