A fifth title in the popular Bridesmaids series, aimed at 6 -- 8 year old girls [but not including the boys, of course!] Jess is a talented young athlete. When her athletics teacher asks her to be a bridesmaid at their wedding, she jumps at the chance! But this is a wedding with a difference -- the bride and groom are to run in a marathon and Jess has to run part of the way with them! But when a traffic jam threatens to stop her getting to the reception, she puts on her trainers again and jogs all the way there! [The young model on the cover of this title -- Ruwa Murapa-Foster -- is herself a buddling gymnast and was about to be in her Hertfordshire regional finals a couple of days after the photo shoot!]
