Madeleine McCann: The Children’s Book

by | 6th, May 2011

MADELEINE McCann: The build up to the release of the official Madeleine book continues as Kate and Gerry are booked to appear on Irish TV’s Late Late Show.

The Irish Herald tells us that host Ryan Tubridy “will be talking to the McCanns on Friday week as they continue their efforts to locate their missing daughter”.

Why has the book been written?

Liverpool-born Kate’s mother Susan Healy said of the book: “Kate has to tell her story, even though it’s been the most terribly painful process over the last nine months.

“We just hope that something will come from the book. It’s something that may just force someone to come forward. It’s also an account for Madeleine and for the twins [six-year-old Sean and Amelie].”

Something to read at bedtime?

Proceeds from the sales will also help boost their dwindling fund to search for their daughter.

The book, which Kate wrote without the aid of a ghost writer, has a recommended retail price of around €22 and is expected to become a best-seller.

It’s not cheap.

Extracts will be serialised by newspapers from this weekend before the book is published…

The book’s launch will be accompanied by several television interviews, including the Late Late appearance.

So long as it’s a slow news day, Our Maddie is about to make a return to the front pages…
