Tootie doesn’t feel at home with her family. Her father is only interested in fat food, her mother only cares about the garden and her brother pesters her all day. Tootie is a sensitive girl who dreams of little dogs and love. The neighbours have many dogs and Tootie often fantasises about living with them. One day a love cherub comes by. ‘I am here because of love,’ he says. Tootie's parents and brother don’t know what love is. The cherub takes Tootie away, not to heaven, but to a family that will love her more!
A surprising and imaginative book about a girl who gets a new chance in life. Both the author and the illustrator have already won many prizes.
