The Book for Happy Hearts

by Maggie Hutchings and illustrated by Jess Racklyeft

This wondrous, uplifting and hope-filled treasury from Maggie Hutchings and Jess Racklyeft is packed with stories, poems and activities to inspire, cherish and share.

Dip into this marvellous book at any time of day. Wake up with positive morning thoughts, spend the afternoon adventuring in real and imagined worlds, and curl up at night with wishes for tomorrow.

A feast for the eyes and a balm for the soul, this is a book of joy that will fill your heart with happiness.

About the Author

Maggie Hutchings is a counsellor, family-dispute mediator, writer and artist who spends her weekends covered in paint and scribbling lists that are never completed.

She is a famously mad aunt, nanna and mother who talks to herself out loud and falls over a lot in the garden at her house in northern New South Wales.

Maggie writes stories with heart and soul for children and adults that encourage kindness, hope and resilience
