Summary When eight-year-old Kelsey goes to Pakistan so her mum and dad can help flood victims, she's miserable. It means missing out on the fun she had planned with her friends - including her birthday party. To ease her homesickness, Kelsey talks to her nanna on Skype. Together they create a story about a porcelain doll that nanna sends from Australia. As Kelsey waits for the doll to arrive they imagine the doll's adventures across Pakistan. With her new friend Shakila, Kelsey learns more about her new country and the people who live there. But how will the doll's quest end? Will Kelsey ever receive her nanna's gift?
