I'll Take You to Mrs Cole!

by Nigel Gray, illustrated by Michael Foreman
£6.99   paperback  Andersen Press Ltd (1998)

I A touching story set in the inner-city, about a little boy who lives on his own with his working mother - who overcomes his fear of a neighbour and her family and makes many new friends.
 
Whenever he is naughty, his mother threatens him with Mrs Cole, who appears to be a disreputable character living nearby in total squalor. He imagines children being starved, whipped and even stewed. Then one day he runs away from home and despite his fears, finds himself outside Mrs Cole's house.
 
She invites him in and he discovers that Mrs Cole's noisy, chaotic kindly house is welcoming and warm and her house becomes somewhere to go when he is good.
