The Lovereading4Kids comment

Marvellously independent, confident and full of optimism, little Edie strides across the pages of this lovely book and straight into readers’ hearts. In bright, busy scenes we see her helping her family by waking everyone up nice and early, organising mummy’s office, keeping her little brother in hand, giving grandpa a stylish new hairstyle. Her enthusiasm and energy are almost boundless, and sometimes she has to be reminded not to be quite so helpful… Lots of little children will recognise themselves or their siblings in this little whirlwind of a girl; even when her good intentions go awry Edie is a happy, lively, lovable presence in her family’s lives, and watching her in action is a tonic. Let’s hope this is the first of many books starring Edie. ~ Andrea Reece

A message from Sophy Henn: Edie just sort of popped into my head, pretty much fully formed. I think she is an amalgamation of lots of little girls, the ones who lead from the front in the playground/at nursery. There are always characters who are VERY busy, organising everyone and helping out whether you want them to or not. I love that spirit and can do attitude, which doesn’t often last in such an undiluted form once peer pressure and self-awareness kick in. I wanted to celebrate it and its unfailing positivity.

Synopsis

Edie by Sophy Henn

edieanimationHello! My name is Edie. I am EVER so helpful. In fact I think helping is one of the things I AM best at. Edie certainly is a very good helper, whether it's helping Mummy wake up bright and early, helping Daddy to get everything at the shops or helping her little brother with sharing and knowing what's what.

Edie is a stunning, stylish picture book with retro colours and a character who will appeal to generations of children. It’s a joy to read aloud and will help children learn some valuable life lessons along the way, with plenty of scope for chats about helping, being kind, sharing, and what to do when things don’t go as planned!
