I love the story, “Spiky“. It’s so true, in today’s world. Some people can be so ugly, on the inside, but you can turn beautiful. My daughter, age 22, can’t wait to take Spiky to work, to read to the kids that she teaches. She is studying to become a teacher, and in her last year of college, she is already teaching. She loves this story, almost as much as I do. Anyone can change, and this book is a perfect example. It’s great to teach your child that ugly souls can become beautiful ones. I used to have an ugly soul, but now my soul has turned beautiful, in my opinion.
Ilaria Guarducci is a magnificent writer, who got this book, “Spiky”, 100% on track for today’s world. I really love the story line, and you will have a chance to win this book, coming up.

She has written 7 children’s books, and I hope to be able to purchase each and every one, for my daughter’s classroom. That would be a great addition.
