Sophie Spikey Has A Very Big Problem

By Sarah Naish & Rosie Jefferies, Illustrated by Amy Farell

Today Sophie Spikey has a very big

problem. She has lost her shoes,

again! There is no way she is asking

her mum for help, though. I can fix it

all by myself, she thought.


Sophie did not have an easy start in

life and now she cannot trust grown

ups to help her. Luckily, her new

mum is good at guessing when

Sophie needs a helping hand.


Written by a mum who understands,

and her daughter (who did not like

asking for help), this is a story for

children functioning at age 3-10.
