Abbie is the creator of 'Tooty the Flute', a children's flute character. Tooty was Abbie's first flute (given to her when she was seven) and she wrote stories about him called 'Flute Adventures'. These stories were published in Flutewise Magazine many years later, appearing from 2005 - 2008. Abbie went on to create a photo diary of 'Tooty the Travelling Flute' which became popular with readers of all ages. 

Tooty now has his own website which includes stories, photos and a 'Hall of Fame' featuring many of the world's leading soloists, orchestral players and flute makers:
