Lily's feeling lonely. Since she started ballet, she never goes out to play in case she messes up her clothes. And now her friends call her 'Princess Lily'. If only Lily could find Fluffy, her dream pet, then she wouldn't be lonely anymore. But what happens when magical Pop Hooper suggests Lily look after a smelly, scruffy cat called Sardine for one night, in return for Pop finding Lily her perfect pet?
