Meet the Author

My name is Victoria, but most of my friends and family call me Tori. Feel free to do the same.Born in the shadow of the black mountains in Wales, I now live by the sea in the south-east of England with my husband, Kelly, a West Highland White Terrier named Keroberous, a cat named Cara, and five degus whose names are Jacob, Jasper, Jenks, Joshua and Luna.Having battled with glaucoma since birth, I now find myself completely blind. But I didn't let that stop me from chasing the dream I've had since I was a young child: the dream of being a published author. I've loved to read and write since I learned how, and always wanted to get my work published. Finally, in 2012, I made that dream come true by self-publishing. So now I'm a published author of children's fiction, as well as a couple of poetry collections.Reading and writing remain my favourite things to do, apart from spending time with my husband, my dog, and my degus, of course. I also enjoy doing crafts (such as card making and knitting). Plus, I dabble in things like roleplaying games (such as Dungeons And Dragons) and figure games (such as BattleTech and Monsterpocalypse) from time to time, and enjoy watching movies and TV shows as well as listening to music. On top of that, I have an interest in history, especially stone age and Egyptian history, and in space exploration. I also love almost anything to do with animals and nature. I have to say "almost" because I'm not too keen on spiders and creepy crawly things, though can pretend they don't exist if they don't come too close to me. My favourite animals are cats, dogs, rodents and horses, though I generally get all soppy over just about any four-legged animal; especially young ones. That love of animals was a huge factor in my choice to become a vegetarian, as it's hard to enjoy a meal when you feel sorry for it.Personality wise I’d describe myself as a combination of Hermione and Luna from the Harry Potter books; Hermione’s thirst for knowledge and love of books, combined with Luna’s wandering mind and alternative way of looking at the world. A couple of people have agreed with that description of me, so I feel I'm justified in using it.

What a great and exciting story! I really enjoyed this book and think it would make happy any child. Thank you, Victoria, for writing such a sweet short story for kids! Highly recommended!

Ah, a short and very sweet story for kids. Reinforces the message that belonging is not, as we are led to believe, about location, location, location, but about people (well, ok, ogres and giants!). I think children would love it and would want to read / hear more.

This is a very good story. It goes to show that being accepted can be difficult, but there is usually a place for everyone.

I think this book is good because it tells that you should never exclude someone. And never juge someone by how they look. This could help a younger sibbling to understand what would happen if they were to make fun of someone. This may be a good book but there are still not so good things about it. For exammple: it could give younger children nightmares or for older kids it may be too short. Because it is free I would get it so you can read it on a really hot day inside or for a rainy. I think the good ages to read this book are ages 4-10.
