'Well, little people, what's the news?'

Meet the big, happy Bell family who live in the vicarage at St Marks. Father is a reverend, Mother is as kind as kind can be. Then there's all the children - practical Paul, dancing Jane, mischievous Ginnie, and finally the baby of the family, Angus, whose ambition is to own a private zoo (he has already begun with his six boxes of caterpillars). And not forgetting Esau, a sure fire competitor for the most beautiful dog in Britain.

Follow their eventful lives from tense auditions to birthday treats; from troubled times to hilarious escapades.

Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can find out which one of the Bell children you most resemble!
