SUMMARY

Marcus is on orphanage work-experience and it’s all gone a bit weird. Is it the eccentric proprietor with a fur-coat made of ‘er not cats’? The Zimmer-frames piled up in the hallway? The fact that there’s not a child in sight? Yes, it’s probably that. In seventy years, no orphan has graduated from the Orphanarium of Mr Erthing Worthing, and Marcus has been sent by the villainous Jocelyn Cuddles to put a stop to this. Cuddles, CEO of Closing Ltd, delights in closing everything: fridge doors, the borders of small countries, even his eyes. Now, it’s the Orphanarium in the firing line. Amidst this bunch of eccentric geriatrics is Dorinda, nanny and good-time gal. Will she be the one to convince Marcus that being an orphan is for life, not just for Christmas house-fires?
