Goodreads asked Vicki Englund:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Vicki Englund My daughter had a lovely lollipop lady at her school whose name was Coralie. She definitely wasn't anything like the lollipop lady in my book but somehow I was inspired by Coralie to write a story about a girl whose mother becomes the new lollipop lady at her school. I thought it would probably be quite embarrassing for a child if their mother turned up at school every single morning and afternoon and was in charge of the kids crossing the road.
