The Scallywags Blow Their Top!

By David Melling

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

A sequel to the bestselling The Scallywags from the creator of Hugless Douglas.

The Scallywags are a band of unruly wolves who find it hard to behave properly. But after they storm out of the Forest Show, they meet their match in the shape of a little sheep. It's not long before they are begging to be accepted again by the other animals. A brilliant follow-up to The Scallywags that shows, in the funniest possible way, that it doesn't pay to lose your temper.

From the bestselling creator of the Hugless Douglas series, which has sold over 1.4 million copies in 26 languages.

'A useful story to show children that it's no fun being at the receiving end of a bad temper.' - Junior

My Dad's in Prison

Jackie Walter
Authors:
Jackie Walter

Dad's gone away for a while, but I don't understand why. I miss him. Every year in the UK, over 200,000 children suffer the trauma of parental imprisonment. Children with a parent in prison feel isolated, ashamed - unable to talk about their situation because they are scared of being bullied and judged. They often feel that they are to blame and having a parent in prison marks them as an outcast. Children with parents in prison are: - twice as likely to experience conduct and mental health problems, and less likely to do well at school- three times more likely to be involved in offending- sixty-five per cent of boys with a convicted father will go on to offend This sensitively written picture book explores the experience of having a parent in prison from a child's point of view. Perfect for sharing with children, it promotes understanding and provides reassurance. It has been written with the advice and support of Storybook Dads, a charity that seeks to help children and parents maintain their relationship during imprisonment by providing CD recordings of fathers reading bedtime stories to their children.
