Year 6 School Leavers Gift

When the inclusion leader of a primary school approached me to discuss giving copies of The Elephant Squad to each of their Year 6 children when they leave at the end of their final summer term, I felt like it was the biggest compliment the book could possibly be given.

She told me that they had some young carers at their school and after looking through the book and seeing themes of friendship and support, she knew it was the perfect choice for all of their children moving on to their next chapter at secondary school.

If you would like to give your Year 6 children a lasting keep sake to remember their primary school years, a signed copy of The Elephant Squad, personalised to them, would be ideal. Please just email me at to discuss it.


Cleo isn’t like the other kids. Every day, she feels stress, pressure, responsibility… she feels alone. But when a stranger appears in the school assembly, Cleo realises that she isn’t the only one.

As she discovers friendship and support that she never knew existed, she makes it her mission to find others out there who need her help, and she won’t rest until she does!
