A reassuring and simple story about separation for the very youngest children.
Mum and Dad don't live together anymore so sometimes this little girl lives with her mum and her cat and sometimes she lives with her dad. She has two bedrooms and two sets of toys but she takes her favourite toys with her wherever she goes. This simple, warm, lift-the-flap book with bold and colourful illustrations is a reassuring representation of separation for the youngest children. Melanie Walsh is sympathetically alive to the changes in routine that are familiar to many children who live with separate parents and are loved by both.
Melanie Walsh studied at the Harrow School of Art and the Royal College of Art, before working as a textile designer. She is now an author/illustrator of children's books.
