Escape into the warmth and charm of this big-hearted modern fable - and discover a European country you've never heard of.Nestling in the picturesque mountains between Italy and Austria is the beautiful but isolated country of Vallerosa, a land of stopped clocks, full employment, pungent tea, patriotism, rival cafes and a slower way of life.
The world has finally started to take notice of this hidden gem, and when a letter arrives, announcing the imminent arrival of a Very Important Person, the Vallerosans hurry to make preparations for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show off their country.
But the visitor is not quite what they had in mind . . .
