When little Rubbalong the cobbler and his remarkable Ma come to settle down in Tiptop Village, everyone quickly finds out that it does not pay to offend them or do anything to harm the good people of the neighbourhood. For one thing, Ma knows some useful spells, and even without their aid Rubbalong's methods can be extremely effective. As a result, life becomes very difficult for unpleasant characters like Grabbit, and his sister, Mrs Well-I-Never.
