When Setbacks Happen

Sit back,

Have a bath,

Watch a film – then laugh,

Go to the Zoo and look at the Giraffes,

Do some sums – maths,

Get lost in the jungle – need maps,

Cuddle the cats,

If it’s really bad, sack your staff,

Be daft,

Wear a top hat,

Then get back on track!









"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018
