Picture Book

Flick loves her home at the end of Holyrood Lane. She dances with butteflies, plays in the autumn leaves and soaks up the sunshine.

But sometimes a storm comes. Sometimes they aren’t too bad, but sometimes she hides from them to feel safe. It’s not until she decides to be brave and try something different that the storms seem to fade away.

A sensitive story about the ‘storms’ young children often face under domestic violence. Gorgeous.

Ruby’s Worry

Author/Illustrator – Tom PercivalRuby's Worry

Picture Book

Ruby is a happy young girl, swinging on her swing, exploring her garden and going to school. But one day she found something. It was a worry. Only small at first it soon became even bigger than her, stopping her being herself.

When she saw a boy sitting alone in the park with his own worry perching next to him, realises she’s not alone and they find the solution to them together.

A fabulous way to show how worries happen, and how to tackle them.
