Alice is the one in the middle. Little sister Rosie is almost always very naughty, and big brother Oliver is never wrong, and he never loses at anything. Then the family drive to see their grandparents, and Alice wins the car journey game for the first time - and by more than anyone else had ever managed. In fact she beats the world record at it! Oliver does not take it gracefully. He sulks. Then Grandma Fox beats him at chess and he throws a spectacular tantrum! By the end of the day, Rosie has actually been good all day, Alice has won something, and Oliver is in disgrace. It is a landmark day in the Singer family!
