Author: Venell Mitchel
This book is targeted primarily at younger children, but will certainly be enjoyed by older ones as well, and even parents and guardians alike. This is a book to which most children could relate, in that, sweets, sweeties or candies - by whichever name they are known — are well liked by children the world over. As they read the story, or, in some instances, the story is read to them, their imagination will come alive as they see their favourite sweets come to life as they speak from within the sweetie jar. This book is vividly creative, and one that every child would enjoy and treasure.
Venell Mitchell is a mother and grandmother who was born and grew up in the West Indies. She migrated to the UK in the seventies, where she currently resides. For quite some time, she has harboured a desire to write a children’s book, and this one is her first attempt. The idea for this book was conceived a few years ago after having purchased some sweets from an online confectionery store at a time she was babysitting her granddaughter.
