Many of us dream of having a book published at some point in our lives. One of our pupils, Molly Copestake, has already achieved this at only ten years old!
Released on 13th September 2021, Mr Pippety Poppety’s Birthday tells the story of a teeny tiny man, who has to change his birthday plans right at the last minute.
Read the story, illustrated by the amazing Alex Crump, to find out if our tiny hero can find someone to help him make his party magical again.
Molly was inspired to write the story by her ‘Magic Grandpa’ who she promised to keep his stories going after he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.
The book, which is available here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pippety-Poppetys-Birthday-Molly-Copestake/dp/1838341587, is also raising money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Literacy is so important at primary school, and we could not be more proud of Molly for her work writing this book.
Reading and telling stories with children at home is invaluable for helping them develop their language skills, and we hope that everyone is inspired by Molly’s grandpa. His stories have really had an influence on his talented granddaughter!
