Richard Fairgray and Alexander Burke have collaborated to produce the newly released children’s book, “Sweet Penny and the Lion” (, a cautionary tale that encourages young girls to replace too much sugar in their compliant personalities with a healthy dose of spicy self-confidence and the courage to break the rules now and again.

This charming tale, told in rhyme, is beautifully illustrated and has an important message to girls taught to always be people pleasers and rule followers.  Only good things can happen, and bad things can be prevented, once a growing girl understands the importance of learning how to never tolerate abuse and start making decisions that benefit her mental and physical well-being first rather than to please everyone else around her!
