I just received a wonderful note from a young woman named Alexia Panakos. She’s now a budding fashion designer but when she was in Grade Six, she read a funny little book called The Puppet Wrangler. It’s about a girl named Telly and a – how shall we say it? - character named Bitsie. (He’s hard to explain.)
Alexia enjoyed the book so much she decided to make a life-size replica of Bitsie.
Even better, she decided that it’s time the little guy came home to Mummy. Alexia is sending Bitsie to me so I can take him on school visits.
Didn’t she do an amazing job?
