A Care Leaver--like each of the contributors to this fresh story collection--is any adult who spent time as a child in foster care, residential care (mainly children's homes), or other arrangements outside their family. Discover why Franny Georgette Tinkleboom has been travelling around the world in a van that has giant mouse ears... And why Spike, the most mischievous hedgehog in Rivington Pike, keeps wandering off into the dark night... And what happens when you drink a wicked orange potion like Alicia Moonfall...

About Sophie Willan

In 2015, Sophie Willan took her debut stand-up comedy hour On Record, based on her experiences of growing up in and out of the Care system, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A sell out run and critical acclaim followed, securing Sophie's place as one of the most exciting rising stars in British Comedy. Lemn Sissay is the author of multiple books of poetry in addition to articles, records, broadcasts, public art, and plays. Sissay was the first poet commissioned to write for London Olympics. Richard Watson uses a range of techniques to produce artwork mixing traditional drawing and painting with collage and mixed media.
