Raphael is happy when Damian challenges him to a video game, even though he turns out to be a bad loser. Raphael decides to enter the championship, but his video player mysteriously stops working. So he has to knit, play the piano and even braid his sister's hair to keep his fingers limber - and beat his rival once and for all!

"A lovely novel about friendship, resourcefulness and honesty."
