This character and story came about whilst raising my daughter on a vegetarian, and then vegan diet. I wanted to create a friend that she could relate to because at that time, few of her real-life friends were on the same path and it can be confusing for a young child to understand why they are different.
I remember going to parties and declining jelly and sweets and my daughter becoming upset because she didn't understand why she wasn't allowed to have all that lovely, bright, yummy stuff that her friends were having, or children asking why she didn't eat fish fingers like everyone else and her getting upset.
My hope is that this little rhyming story & colouring book will be a gentle way to help vegetarian and vegan parents explain their lifestyle choice and start the compassionate eatingconversation.
