William And The Ancient Souls

A stern lady, Miss Mush, President of the Ancient Souls (who believe they have lived past lives), move in next door. Her costumed meetings are frequented by Mr. Gregorius Lambkin, a timid soul who doesn’t actually enjoy the meetings much. Miss Mush wishes to propose to Mr. Lambkin, but he is saved by William, who facilitates a mad scheme whereby a model of Mr. Lambkin keeps Mrs. Mush talking, and allows Mr. Lambkin himself to go on holiday until after Miss. Mush has moved from the village.
