Ben is aged 9 and lives in Sheringham in Norfolk.
Ben and his identical twin Alex were born prematurely at 29 weeks. Both boys were seriously ill and heartbreakingly Alex passed away after just 4 days.
Ben had suffered a bleed to the brain. He was diagnosed with Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy at 2 years old.
Despite his disability, Ben is a happy, friendly boy, who takes a great interest in the world around him.
Ben decided that he wanted to help fund the operation that will change his life. Being an avid reader, Ben decided that he should write a book. Not just any book. This book would have a magical and fantastical storyline.
The book has not been edited. It has not been redrafted. It is presented exactly as Ben intends. Although he is now 9, Ben started working on the book when he was only 8.
This is a book written by a young boy, for other young children. We hope you enjoy the adventure.
