Charley Chatty likes shiny things, especially shiny pennies. Sometimes Charley thinks her siblings get more than her so she likes to keep the pennies safe in her pocket.

Charley spots some pennies lying around the house, and puts them in her piggy bank. But she gets very nervous when her dad starts looking for the missing pennies. Luckily, Charley's dad is good at working out what might have happened and helps Charley to put it all right again.

Written by a mum who understands and her daughter, who is adopted, this insightful story will help your whole family to feel a bit better.


"As a child protection social worker working with children in care, foster carers & adopters. I can wholeheartedly recommend the series of books relating to Charley Chatty and her siblings. These books allow children to to develop their emotional literacy and understanding their biggest and scariest feelings. These books work for the smallest children up to teenagers (yes really) as they are relatable on so many levels. These books are a must for adopters, foster carers, children in care, adopted children, children with additional needs and any child who needs help with developing self awareness and emotional literacy".


"Really brilliant story which helped me to address stealing with my adopted child. The strategies to help resolve this are clearly explained throughout. Really excellent thank you!"
