The images are funny, comforting, and cozy, finally arriving at that satisfying conclusion of the “sudden feeling that everything will be alright.”

Author Malve von Hassell, author of Alina’: A Song For the Telling.

She Ran Away From Love stars little Frilly. She feels small and confused and always scared. She even ran away from Love. She decides to learn courage by going on a quest. Equipped with her pink exploring bag and a selection of hats, she sets off into the wide world.  Sometimes, those who go alone and quietly, simply seeking to be their best, are going on the grandest quest of all.


A magical little grand tour into the meaning of happiness.

Sharrie Williams, Author of The Maybelline Story

Rather like a colouring book for adults, this book invites you to escape and explore adult issues in a blue sky childhood way of thinking. It is original, and refreshing, with a wide target audience’

Jane Hunt, Writer

It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In: When you feel lost, alone and left behind, can you ever find again the brightness in your world? Everyone wants to be cherished by their special someone. But how do you go on when, for whatever reason, they are no longer with you? Mawson explores that almost inexpressible feeling of Lost-ness. A gentle little story about love, loss, and renewal of hope, told simply with pictures of teddy bears.

This little story made me well up. A lovely, poignant story with delightful illustrations.
