If you could change something about yourself, would you do it?

When Sarah Simpkins is teased about her shadow in the school playground, she finds herself wishing she didn’t have one.

That night she has the chance to make the wish come true. But will losing her shadow really make her happy?

“Jones and Clark have put together a truly lovely children’s book here, reminiscent of beloved children’s classics like Peter Pan.” – Red City Review ★★★★★

“A fantastically original story about a girl who loses her shadow, it also has an important underlying message about body image and bullying. Sarah’s Shadow is essential reading for young children and their parents.”   The Book Reviewers ★★★★★

“Sarah’s Shadow is most highly recommended.” – Readers’ Favorite ★★★★★

“Expansive vocabulary, impactful illustrations and a message of being comfortable in your own skin (shadow). Lovely stuff.”  The Bookbag ★★★★

“…a book written for children by someone who obviously understands them completely and who is a cracking story-teller into the bargain. I can’t recommend Sarah’s Shadow highly enough. Brilliant stuff.”  Linda Hill, leading UK book blogger

“This story would be a great tool for children (or their adults) experiencing bullying or confidence issues, as the story demonstrates a way to work through emotions related to these topics.” The Children’s Book Review
