It’s Not Always Black or White - Designed and illustrated by Kate Knapp, Kate shines some light on some of life's dark dilemmas!
A 172 page collection of feathery drawings and winged words.
Life isn’t always clear and simple, cut and dried, open and shut, nor straight up and down.

But hey - it’s the only one we have. So we’d best put on our best smiles, and put our best feet forward.
This adorable book resonates with so many readers, making it an all time favourite.
