Another Annabel Discovered!

Prickles the sheep
Another real-life sheep found with 7 years wool after fleeing bushfires.

Annabel’s Dance is based on the author’s grand-daughter whose ADHD diagnosis inspired a lots of research to cope with her behaviour. At the same time, a sheep was found in New Zealand with 5 years of wool.

‘Hmmmm, that sheep could possibly have ADHD,’ Diane thought. And so Annabel’s story was born. The mob find her characteristics really annoying at first, but then realise those same characteristics get her ahead in life. Sound familiar?

A story about being comfortable in your own skin (wool) and making the most of your opportunities.

No mention of ADHD, but gives inspiration and understanding to kids, peers, parents and teachers.

Signed copies and home study notes are available HERE.
