Quotations and trivia

Rossetta Woolf & Sharon Burn met with Sting several times - one known occasion was 1981-03-02.

Sting first met the girls when they were sitting at his doorstep for days - occasionally putting their artwork through his letterbox. When they were desperate enough to knock he invited them in and they began to develop the idea of a children's book.

A month later they returned with a rough layout for the book, which Sting took to his publisher.

He met them again at Christmas 1980.
