Meet the Squibbles is a riot of colour and quirky characters that any child will love. As this is volume 1, the book is more of an introduction to the range of characters rather than a story book. It starts with an overview of where the reader can fi ...more

“I am in control of my own well-being”
Shelley Wilson

“Take a moment to think about something you’ve always wanted to do, have or learn. If you’d started working towards it twelve months ago it could be yours now.”
Shelley Wilson, How I Changed My Life In a Year: One Woman's Mission To Lose Weight, Get Fit, Beat Her Demons, And Find Happiness …In Twelve Easy Steps!

“I make a vision board every New Year and fill it with all the things I hope to achieve in the coming year; hanging it up where you see it every day affirms your wishes and helps you to action them. You”
Shelley Wilson, How I Changed My Life In a Year: One Woman's Mission To Lose Weight, Get Fit, Beat Her Demons, And Find Happiness …In Twelve Easy Steps!

“Now get out in that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans”
James Herbert

“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.”
Nicolas Chamfort

“I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, 'Where’s the self-help section?' She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.”
Steven Wright

Groucho Marx

“My life has a superb cast, but I cannot figure out the plot.”
Ashleigh Brilliant
