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.
