Aunt Farida’s house was so far from town that she had to travel two full days to reach the nearest shop. But that does not bother Aunt Farida one bit. She uses the materials available at hand and makes her own shoes, her clothes, and even her own furniture!
One day, she decides to make birthday gifts for her favourite niece and her family. What happens when the labels all fall off and the gifts get mixed up before they reach their destination?
