Letters to Africa is on sale now from the bookshop at South Lakes Animal Wildlife Park. It can be ordered online and contains letters between children in the UK and the African countries of Kenya and Zambia. Extracts from my own fiction contributions can be found on the "My Stories" page of this blog. Access it from the link on the top right of this page.
The book contains writing from British and African schoolchildren, authors Lauren St. John, Mary Hoffman, Ifeoma Onyefulu and fellow MA in Writing for Children student, Victoria Todd as well as experts on the Massai tribe and their native language. Find out more too about the amazing Sport in Action programme I was fortunate enough to witness on my trip to Zambia while I researched stories and collected letters. Marvel at the stunning photographs and illustrations by Uclan students, discover interesting facts about the Massai warriors and even learn how to speak their language. The book draws on the talents and knowledge of people from a wide range of diciplines - publishers, authors, illustrators, photographers and linguists included. School children, students, and professionals all worked together to produce a book which is as unique as it is insightful. A lovely gift for yourself or a child, it's both beautiful and educational. Most important of all, as all proceeds go to improve educational reources for children in Africa, you're giving others the gift of education too.
