When Milo decides he's going to tell a story, it seems like a great idea.

The only problem is that he's not sure how to start... what to put in the middle... or how to end it. With a little help from his family, some real-life inspiration, and a lot of imagination, Milo's story is soon off to a flying start.

If only his little brother and sister weren't getting in the way. But then Milo learns the most important lesson of all about stories - that they are made to be shared.
