Nine-year-old Veena’s ideas always have a lot of personality, but little payoff!

There was the time she coaxed her aunt into getting free circus tickets, which were payment for cleaning the lion cages. 🦁 Or, how about the time they made Veena’s father a pair of grass-cutting roller skates, which left him with a bump and a torn-up lawn? ⛸

So, when Veena announces that she has a get-rich-quick scheme, Aunt Malu really should’ve known better.

Inspired by her niece’s idea she gets to work, mixing herbs and sprinkling magic, to create three marvellous types of paint! 💫

At first, they sell out quickly and are a raging success. But in time, odd complaints start stacking up, and now Aunt Malu is in debt.

Can Veena come up with one final brainwave to help her aunt?
