  • Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept

    By Jayneen Sanders
    Illustrated by Craig Smith
    Published by Upload Publishing 2011

    Sir Alfred has a terrible secret. A secret that should never ever be kept.

    But who will poor little Sir Alfred tell? Who can he trust?

    The startling theme of this book is the question, how would you teach a young child about sexual abuse?

    The text is unflinching – it shows that the danger is often from someone known and trusted by the child, not a case of ‘stranger danger’. I saw my job as illustrator was to interpret the predatory relationship, and to picture it through the eyes of the young child.

    The drawings are somewhat caricatured, but the body language is subtly menacing in places.

    This was an interesting and challenging balance to achieve.
