Author Bio

Mimi Lex keeps herself young by sneaking a peak at the world through the eyes of kids. Her stories celebrate the attitude and curiosity of that superior race of humanity, the non-adult! 
She takes particular joy in their less flattering observations of the grown-up world.
When Mimi isn’t writing books she likes to kick around with her family, indulges in a little daydreaming, or keeps herself busy working on her other passions.
She also likes to keep herself occupied in her ‘other’ job – running a small strategic consulting enterprise.

Mum says it is time to go…

Fionn is a boy who likes routine 
and he doesn’t want to leave the house.

But when he puts on his favourite shoes, 
suddenly his summer day gets brighter.
