MEIR CARROT &
THE HAPPY SHOPPER
Madelaine Black, Author
Madelaine Black's favorite thing to do is share funny stories and silly songs with her grandchildren.
Her other favorite thing to do is to help charities and non-profits to raise funds and awareness.
She has spent 35 years in both the UK and Israel as an award-winning creative consultant. She calls what she does “creativity that matters”.
The idea for this book about a magical talking carrot popped into Madelaine’s head after an inspiring morning she spent volunteering at her local Meir Panim food bank.
