Flo’s family-holidays promise to be the worst ever. But then she discovers a mysterious bottle under her bed. In it lives a tiny plump greenhaired woman named Frieda. Freaky Frieda promises to fulfill three wishes, if Flo helps her out of the bottle. And when Flo releases Frieda, the holidays turn out to be the most exciting of her whole life!
The holiday-cottage turns out to be a hovel, her parents squabble with themselves and the phony neighbours. Their son David has nothing better to do than to tease Flo. And Maya, her big sister, is busy reading, texting and chatting, and ignoring everything else. But then freaky Frieda comes out of the bottle and things become crazy. Together, they find a compagnion for Frieda, chase away an estate agent, find a playmate for Flo, end the dispute of the adults, and last but not least discover a hidden treasure.
