This has been a wonderful project working with Meadows Primary School in Ketley, Telford. The school decided to write their own story with their year 4 classes with the help of my good friend Dave Weston (author of the Wrekin Giant children’s book) . The story is based on the historic times of the Ketley mines.
I was delighted to be asked to illustrate the book cover. I also held a workshop with the children and helped them create the inside illustrations for the story. The children have done an absolutely fabulous job on both writing the story and the wonderful creative illustrations they should be so proud of themselves! Well done!
The book is due to be launched on 22nd November at Ketley Community Centre - 5:30pm - 6:30pm, I can’t wait! You can also buy a copy from amazon here
Step back to a time when the 18th century mines of Ketley were bustling.
A heart-warming heritage tale about a horse called Archie, who proves that heroes come in all shapes and sizes. When there is an accident down the mine, how could a pit pony as small as Archie, save the day?
Check out the gallery below from my school visit…
I am extremely excited about their story and can not wait for the launch!
