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.
