The couple calls on Grandmama, the professor’s grandmother; technical wizard Baby Z, the Whats-a-ma-call-its’ four-year-old son; and Miss V, their accomplished six-year-old daughter. Together, the family will do all they can to show compassion to those who are in need—and then make it to the royal wedding in time!
In this children’s story, Professor and Mrs. Whats-a-ma-call-it find themselves on an unexpected adventure in London as they work to help others.
