Ant & Dec + Katie Abey = the brand new title ‘Propa Happy’!

Multi-Award-winning TV hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly released their debut children’s book, ‘Propa Happy’ – illustrated by Advocate-Art‘s very own, Katie Abey!

Published by Farshore, Propa Happy is a fun-filled guide to feeling good, for children aged 7+. It’s packed with games, jokes, anecdotes, challenges, and quizzes to make kids smile.
Propa Happy includes mental health advice and activities so that children can nurture their emotional wellbeing every day.
Much of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go to leading children’s charity, the NSPCC.

“Every child deserves a happy childhood – and the NSPCC rely on fundraising to ensure they can continue to be here for children and families. As NSPCC Ambassadors for Childhood, we wanted to show our support for this fantastic charity and their vital work.”
