Title: Shiloh the Kid Whisperer
Genre: Rhyming Social/family Issue
Word count: 450


Dear Agents,

When a little girl’s play date arrives, she hides under the bed watching him cause havoc in her room. Growing more tense and unable to speak up, Shiloh the Kid Whisperer, pops up to help! In a burst of excitement, her play date gets too close and she curls into a ball, wishing she wasn’t so shy. With Shiloh’s support, the little girl must find her quiet voice to make herself heard, or hide under her bed forever. 

At 450 words, SHILOH THE KID WHISPERER, is a rhyming picture book for 4-8 year olds, and is part of a series of “Monster Troubles.” It is told through the eyes of a little girl struggling to find her voice in the company of a louder, energetic child. As an Arts Psychotherapist, and a mother of a cautious child, I help families to recognise strength in a watchful approach. I am also an artist and have attached an illustration of Shiloh. In addition to the "Monster Troubles" series, I have a middle grade, dark fantasy, complete at 41,000, which I am happy to send upon request.

Thank you for your consideration.

First 50 words:

I hear the doorbell ringing and I run into my room,
I shut my eyes and hold my breath; I’ll have to come out soon.
His footsteps patter closer, so I hide under my bed,
This play date on his way upstairs puts horrors in my head.
