Life is never dull for the neighbours in Acorn Road...George lives at number 6 Acorn Road, and he loves to sit in his garden doing magazine competitions. Louis lives at number 8, and he loves to stand in his garden practising the trumpet: Traan-traan-traaah! With all that noise, poor George just can't concentrate on his questions. But worse is to come when Harriet moves in over the road...with her big, shiny and very noisy motorbike: Vroom-vroom-whrrr! Now Louis is unhappy, too. But diplomatic Harriet takes matters in hand and proposes a noise rota with competitions, trumpets and motorbikes to be enjoyed on alternate days from Monday to Saturday - leaving Sundays free to meet for tea and cakes! In the second story George has a very difficult competition to enter, but his friends keep distracting him. Finally his patience is exhausted and he asks them to leave him alone, until he realizes that he needs their help to answer some of the questions. When all the questions are answered and George looks at the closing date he realizes that he only has an hour to get them to the magazine office - Oh No! But help is at hand in the shape of Harriet and her super-speedy motorbike and sidecar. They arrive at the office just in time and one week late George receives a golden envelope in the post...he's won the prize!show more
