Rosie Rudey and the Very Annoying Parent

By Sarah Naish & Rosie Jefferies, Illustrated by Amy Farell

Today Rosie Rudey has had enough!

"Rosie, put your coat on, it's cold

outside.“"Rosie, bring your sandwich box

to the kitchen, please."

"Rosie, stop being nasty to your brother."

LEAVE ME ALONE, she thought.


Rosie did not have an easy childhood

which has made her build a hard shell

around herself so no one can get in.

Luckily her new mum knows just how to

help soften Rosie's hard exterior.


Written by a mum who understands, and

her daughter (who was also a bit prickly),

this is a story for children functioning at

age 3-10
