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 book is due to be launched very soon, I can’t wait! Look out for the launch date.
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?
