In A Job for Susan, her parents are
at last returned from Africa, after three years during which Susan lived
with her Carmichael cousins in Wichwood. Fortunately Mr and Mrs Lyle
are equally enchanted with Wichwood Village, and rent Maggie Zimmerlis
little house just five minutes walk from the Carmichaels. Christmas
is on its way, but Bill is feeling only panic as he realises his rash
promise to raise £10 for Oxfam over the holidays must be fulfilled.
Susan happily springs into action to help him out, and embarks on a
spurt of inexpert but enthusiastic fundraising. Once they find out the
value of rare coins, their search for a 1953 penny becomes the stuff
of farce, but a trip to the bank to acquire a small sack of change results
in the capture of some local hoodlums.
