THE CRUSH

Ardal Travis is in love. There's just one problem. He's an eight-year-old schoolboy and the object of his affection is his teacher, Miss Purdy. One day he gives her a toy ring to show his affection. But heartbreak awaits when he bumps into Miss Purdy and her boyfriend having just bought a very real engagement ring. Devastated and spurned, Ardal hatches a plan to get her back.
