Description
Seven-year-old Pip is an orphan. He lives with his nasty older sister and works as a blacksmith's apprentice. Pip dreams of a better life, but has no idea how to turn his luck around. Then a mysterious stranger decides to make all of Pip's dreams come true. Pip's lonely life is about to change forever. Will his great expectations be realized? Or will he learn that money and power are worthless without love and friendship?
