About the Book

A series of short stories based around a (nearly) nine year old, mischievous girl called Sally, her best friend, Crumble (a purple elephant) and the people that share her massive castle in a tidy street near the park. Mum, Dad and the Blob.

Sally has a definite idea of who she is and what she wants but these stories also contain some valuable lessons that Sally - and her family - might benefit from.

Trying to mix humour and surprises along with some important issues regarding the way that children feel and deal with emotional situations, these stories are based on the problems that parents and their children can face as they go along life's journey together.

Easy to read and ideal for a bedtime story, Sally and her friends have enough similarities to my own children for them to consider legal action. Luckily I don't pay them enough pocket money and they should have forgiven me by the time they leave home.

As a primary school teacher and a parent of three 'Sallys', I wanted to try and use my love of storytelling to collect together a series of short stories that reflect my interest and passion for helping children to develop their social and emotional skills.
I now work with children that have emotional and behavioural problems. I know that there are things that come up in every child's life that can cause anxiety. I hope that by writing these short stories, I am able to open up conversations between children and their parents and give them a talking point to explore things that may have happened, or may actually be happening to them.
