Thank goodness I dropped it, it fell open, and I had a read first.
Here it is:
It start off with this little girl - "Sugar" (yep) - introducing her mum, and how much fun they have together.
Then she has to stay with her Grandmother.
So: where's Mum gone away to? You get the feeling it's a hard time, and the book is gonna deal with a 'big issue'...
Is she getting some sort of treatment in hospital?
Was it a dodgy divorce?
Is she going away in the armed forces?
No: Mummy's 'away' for 25 to life.
Whoa. Didn't see that one coming. That might be a bit sensitive for preschool!
Can't wait til someone comes in and asks for this one day. Yipe!
Side Note: Our area has just had a jail built. So perhaps this was a thoughtful purchase... Eek.
