Young Cardiff South student’s book published

16/06/2019 Posted by admin

TALENTED: Cardiff South Primary School student Hannah Chandler, 12, author of I Don’t Like Cheese.LIKE most authors, Cardiff South’s Hannah Chandler experiences the occasional bout of writer’s block.

But there is one thing that sets Hannah apart – she is only 12 years old.

This month she celebrates the release of her first picture book.

I Don’t Like Cheese tells the tale of Mike the mouse.

Mike lives with the Walker family, who feed him exotic cuisines such as Mexican and Italian.

But when the Walkers go on holidays, Mike is left to eat the one thing he hates the most: cheese.

Hannah wrote the book in response to a challenge from her Cardiff South Primary School principal David Holland.

It took her a few months to come up with the idea, but only about 45 minutes to write it.

“The beginning of the story was probably the hardest to write,” she said.

“The rest just flowed.”

News of Hannah’s talent spread fast with an interview on the Kids’ Book Review website and before she knew it, she had been offered a publishing deal.

The book hit the shelves last Monday after a successful stint online.

Hannah said she was grateful for the opportunity.

“I never imagined that when I wrote this book it would be published,” she said.

“I have always wanted to be an author and I think it’s incredible that I have been given this opportunity at such a young age.”

I Don’t Like Cheese is available from idontlikecheese南京夜网 and all good bookshops for $19.99.
