My daughters Jasmine and Iris are totally addicted to the Land of Sometimes. They know the lyrics by heart, and we only got the CD a week ago! Their favourite songs are Wishes, The Willow Tree and The Electric Volcano. Their dream is to meet Lara, who is part of the singing. They want to offer The Land of Sometimes to their school friends so that they can all sing the songs together. I call that a success!
