Description

Samantha Piggleton of Pickwick Lane is just like your average six-year-old girl. She loves to play with her dolls, have tea parties and play dress-ups. Samantha did, however, have a dark secret... An unpleasant habit... something that would cause a shiver down the spine of anyone who would catch a glimpse of her doing it... Samantha liked to pick her nose. Not just pick it; she would dig deep, rummage around and explore. What Samantha did not realise was that under her finger nails hid another dark, unpleasant secret. This book will help children overcome the urge to pick their nose and introduces the concept of personal hygiene. This story is told as a metaphor to read aloud to children and enjoy together. The vibrant illustrations and use of language draws children in to be part of the adventure, gently guiding them alongside the characters to get the message on a more personal level for them, to make their own meanings and take control of their own life situation - in their own way.show more
