All the children are afraid of mean Mr Wintergarten.
His garden is grey and sunless and it is guarded, they say, by a dog like a wolf and a saltwater crocodile.
By contrast, the garden of his sunny new neighbours, the Summers, is a playground of happiness and flowers.
One day Rose's ball goes over the fence into Mr Wintergarten's garden and, prompted by her mother, Rose visits her frosty next-door neighbour, bearing hot fairy cakes and flowers.
What will Mr Wintergarten say?
