Author Bio – Marion Adams has been writing for as long as she can remember, usually for fun and sometimes for money as well. She started her career as an in-house copywriter with a publisher and now works as a freelance proofreader and editor. It’s her dream job because she’s paid to read all day (and eat dark chocolate). Over the years, she’s written all kinds of things for both adults and children, some serious and some less so, with published work including magazine stories, articles, poems, plays and non-fiction books.
Marion lives in Devon, UK, and when she’s not reading or writing (or eating dark chocolate), she loves going for walks on the wild moors where her picture book Go To Sleep! is set.

Sarah’s Shadow

If you could change something about yourself, would you do it? When Sarah Simpkins is teased about her shadow in the school playground, she finds herself wishing she didn't have one. That night she has the chance to make the wish come true. But will losing her shadow really make her happy?

A simple tale about being teased and taking it to heart.
Sarah is thin and tall. Later in life she will appreciate that, but not when she is a child.
Kids can be mean, even cruel, often without meaning to be so harsh. Feelings can be hurt by words.

When Sarah makes a wish upon a star, she discovers that maybe she shouldn't have reacted so quickly. Shadows can be fun friends.

Cleanly and crisply illustrated.

Author Bio – Nick Jones is an author based in Cheshire, UK, but originally from Bristol. 
He has written a series of joke books and an illustrated children's book. 
His first joke book, Gagged and Bound, was written during the summer of 2014 and was published by Full Media Ltd later in the year to critical acclaim, garnering positive reviews from numerous book review websites such as Reader's Favorite and The Bookbag. 
A follow-up, Gagged and Bound 2, was released a year later and received a similarly positive response, and in 2017 Nick returned with the third instalment. 

Nick returned with a very different book, Sarah's Shadow, in December 2017. 
He has several new books in the pipeline including two picture books and a children’s joke book.
