A BOOK about Madeleine McCann is to be published by her parents who are desperate to keep the hunt for her going.
Called simply Madeleine it will be published around next May — the fourth anniversary of her abduction.
All proceeds from the book will be donated to the Find Madeleine fund which pays for the search for missing Maddie to continue.
Maddie was three years old when she was snatched while on holiday with her parents in Portugal in May 2007.

Literary agent Christopher Little is acting for her parents Kate and Gerry McCann.
The McCanns were introduced to Mr Little by Harry Potter author JK Rowling who is represented by him. She has been a huge supporter of the couple and has donated thousands to the Find Madeleine fund.
The McCanns, from Rothley, Leicestershire, asked JK Rowling for help after realising that the fund, which currently stands at £300,000 would run out by next spring.
A source close to the McCanns revealed yesterday: "Writing the book is proving to be a very painful experience for them, reliving all the awful memories and writing about their darling daughter when she is still not home.
"It is really the book they never wanted to write.
