Join Tate Publishing author Lisa Stickley for a workshop around a humorous story about the difficulty of waitressing with hiccups

Mabel is one of the best waitresses you’ll ever meet, but today there’s a problem. She has the hiccups and suddenly, spaghetti bolognese is flying, ice cream sundaes are tumbling and the customers are less than pleased. Can her friends find a way to cure Mabel’s hiccups and save the day? Full of zest and humour this book will have fans young and old laughing out loud.
