The following are some pictures of Shira when she was the age described in the books Summer of Changes and Summer of Adventures.
The reason Shira loved to
come along for presentations
at schools wasn't just because she knew she would get biscuits, but because
she knew she was the centre of attention and she loved to show off.
Here she was giving Ann a hug, so she could get her biscuit,
and she was performing for the kids at schools,
and whispering in Ann's ear.
