A book about a child who has an adult friend who makes her feel special. Sometimes a bit too special.
His touching makes her frightened and confused. It is only when she has the courage to tell someone that her heart begins to heal.
This beautifully illustrated book encourages and empowers children to speak up if someone is touching them in a way that makes them uncomfortable.
Based on personal experience, Hunter's book is an important resource for anyone who has children in their care, including parents, teachers, counsellors, libraries and schools.
"It happened when I was little,
Always when we were alone.
...But sometimes he did things that worried me
And made me feel completely strange on the inside.
I thought GAMES were supposed to be FUN."
