Bolton School Boys’ Division Year 12 pupil Luke Brabbin has written and published his own children’s eBook.
Luke’s picture book is called ‘Jeffery, Dillon and Hugo go to the Swamp’ and is aimed at children aged 3 to 8. In the book, Luke tells the story of three monsters who go on an adventure to a swamp, and learn about morals and friendship on the way. Luke registered with the creative publishing website Blurb, and sent off his book which was approved and published, and is now available to buy as an e book.
He wrote the book in his A Level English class over the course of around 12 weeks. He looked at a range of children’s books for inspiration and spoke with Writer in Residence at the School, Iris Feindt, who also writes children’s books. He was also inspired by a theatre piece about why we tell fairytales, part of his EPQ work at school. Luke also studies art at A Level and created all the illustrations in the book himself, using a unique style of mixing photographs with artwork. This is the first book Luke has written but he hopes to write more.
