It is written by lawyer-turned-illustrator, Jenny Lucas, inspired by and in memory of her close friends’ daughter Maisie, who died in September 2020 from a very rare form of childhood cancer.
Sales of the book have already raised more than £5,000 for Scottish children’s cancer charity, LoveOliver, which has supported Maisie’s family during their hardest times. Jenny was recently given a Points of Light award with a letter from the Prime Minster, commending the book and money raised.
