"Your uncle is amazing," Mia's friends tell her.
"Yes," agrees Mia. "He is magic."
Mia's Uncle Robbie is amazing - he knows lots of magic tricks, like how to produce an egg from Mia's ear, or how to turn a red hanky into a green one. One kind of magic he hasn't yet learnt, however, is how to make his legs work. But this doesn't stop him from being the best uncle Mia could wish for!
