The subject of bullying is always a difficult topic to address when trying to reach children, yet in her debut book Michelle in: Crabbit comes to Stay, new children's author Julie Hegarty succeeds in combining a fun, colourful story with an important message for young readers.
Â£1.00 from the sale of each book will be donated to Beatbullying.
Julie's book is aimed at children between the ages of three and seven, an age group previously neglected by anti-bullying campaigns. Set in the rockpool world of Michelle the scallop, the book transports the reader into a magical yet safe place where they can deal with the subject of bullying and the emotions connected to it. It's a beautiful story, with fantastic illustrations and acts rather like a modern day Aesop's Fable. The book is also supported by the children's charity, Beatbullying and a Â£1 from every sale will be donated to the charity.
