The enticing novel from much-loved Billy Hopkins, author of the bestselling OUR KID, KATE'S STORY and more. Billy Hopkins is thrilled to be released from the trials and tribulations of teaching when he takes early retirement. He's just buzzing with ideas for filling his time and making a spare buck - whether it's investing in apparently fail-safe business enterprises, starting up himself as an entrepreneur specialising in doll's houses or writing up the story of his life. Only one of those is likely to have the desired result on the financial front - but Billy's hilarious descriptions of his efforts, together with lovely glimpses of his ever-expanding family, make WHATEVER NEXT! a delightful and absolutely satisfying novel, which will update on-going readers and introduce many new ones to the unique world of the Hopkins household.But what eclipsed everything and captured the imagination of them all was Queen Marya#39;s dolla#39;s housewhichwas on loan from Windsor Castle. ... every detail of the furniture and fittings fromthewroughtiron entrygates in thegardento the chandeliers in the bedrooms was exact. ... I hope this exhibition is not giving you ideas.
