I think I’m cuddly, tho’ some say I’m fat.
A long time ago, when I was just small,
I had no one to love me, no one at all.”
The book is written by Susan Wilkins and illustrated by Liz Furness. Sue intends to ‘rock the world’ with her book, and her carefully researched, well-organised marketing plan is already delivering impressive sales. Watch out for more!
