writing + podcasts (2018)

Melbourne, VIC

The Lonely Little Cactus is a children’s picture storybook about a cactus that feels lonely living in the desert. Through a series of colourful interactions with desert dwellers, the little cactus learns strategies to copy with feelings of loneliness. The book is both entertaining and educational, aimed at children aged 4 to 8 years. The underlying message of the book is that coping strategies are unique and often more than one is needed to manage difficult situations.

The combination of beautiful images, and entertaining story and important psycho-educational messages will hopefully make the book a hit with parents, educators and children.
