Grace Gibson has just moved to Catastrophe where her dad is the new head teacher at Calamity Primary School. It sure is no ordinary town. This is a place where disaster rules the day. Meteors fall from the sky. Volcanoes erupt. Giant robots roam the streets. Villains are on the loose. And evil geniuses are plotting revenge on a daily basis. What's more, no one seems to care. Least of all the girls in Grace's class who would rather primp and preen than help a victim in distress. But, one day, a chance accident up in the loft with an old chemistry set and a stick of bubblegum leads Grace to an extraordinary discovery. It's going to save her life. In fact, it's going to save the lives of everyone in Catastrophe. But she has to keep it a secret. And, for that, she will need a whole new identity...This is a sensational new series from the hugely talented and award-winning cartoonist Andi Watson. Combining a truly mixed and engaging cast of characters with modern issues, a few fairytale twists, and classic comic book storytelling, Andi Watson has created a completely original world and a very heartwarming new super-heroine. There is a Web comic to launch one month ahead of publication. This is print-on-demand merchandise and major publishing programme.

Glister and her father live at Chilblain Hall – home to an orchard with a remarkable collection of trees. Not least, the very special Butterworth Tree. It is said that when the Butterworth Tree blooms, a bumper crop of Butterworth relatives from past, present and future will fall. Of course, Glister longs to have a big family and dreams of cosseting aunts and devoted uncles, hoping upon hope that the tree may even bear fruit of the famed Butterworth Giant... Then, one day, her dream finally comes true.
