Nancy wants so much to be the centre of attention at school that she makes up a story - a wish really. She tells the teacher that she has a Venus Flytrap at home. But when the teacher asks her to bring the plant in to show the class, Nancy is stuck! What's she going to do? At home Nancy starts making up stories to explain away the first one. Maybe the flytrap ate so many flies that it got sick and died? She pesters her white Mum and her Aboriginal Dad to try and help. Together they find a story that Nancy can call her own. What will Nancy tell her class in the morning? Flytrap is a playful and inspiring book about what stories can do.
