Little Ruby and Friends after publishing her brilliant memoir, Ruby is adored by everyone, including a huge number of very young fans.
So now Ruby has written a gorgeous picture book, aimed at 4- to 7-year-olds.
Little Ruby explores the playground and finds all of her friends there!
But they all face challenges as they run and swing and climb and kick the ball.
Ruby discovers that her friends have very different ways of sorting out their problems – she even learns from them how to solve her own!
Note from Ruby
Talofa, my friends!
I wrote this book to show that everyone gets upset sometimes, and that can look very different for each of us.
But the good news is there are also heaps of ways to feel better, and sometimes all we need to do is listen. I hope you love this book, too!

It covers all the key Ruby topics: friendship, teamwork, feelings, and the belief that everyone is different and special. All wonderful messages for every child.
The girls in the book are all based on Ruby's childhood friends. And, the first-time illustrator, Samoni Cavander, is also a friend of Ruby's. This is another example of the way Ruby highlights others, always.
