Synopsis: When Norman Huntley and his friend Henry invent, on the spur of the moment, an 83-year-old woman called Miss Hargreaves, they are inspired to post a letter to their new fictional friend. It is only meant to be a silly, harmless game - until Miss Hargreaves arrives on their doorstep, complete with her cockatoo, her harp and - last but not least - her bath. She is, to Norman's utter disbelief, exactly as he had imagined her: eccentric and endlessly astounding. He hadn't imagined, however, how much havoc an imaginary octogenarian could wreak in his sleepy Buckinghamshire home town, Cornford.

Will his once-ordinary, once-peaceful life ever be the same again? And, what's more, does he want it to be?

About the Author: Frank Baker, born in London in 1908, was a musician, actor, and novelist. He was the author of fifteen novels, of which Miss Hargreaves was the most successful. He died in 1983.
