Tim's Aunty Sue is getting married - on an island with a beach, and trees with coconuts on them! But while everyone in Tim's family is busy packing to go to the wedding, Tim is facing a terrible dilemma. Everything he wants to take on the plane must go inside his day pack, and Toby just won't fit in! When the wedding day finally arrives, Tim's secretive packing solution is revealed, to the dismay of everyone except Aunty Sue. Her compassionate and inventive solution to near-disaster results in a very happy ending for all.
