School staff team up to publish children’s book


TWO members of staff from Warrington’s Sir Thomas Boteler CE High School have teamed up to publish a children’s picture book.
“The Boy Who Dug” will be released tomorrow (Saturday).
English Teacher Jane Woodcock has written the story in rhyme, about a young lad leaving home to work on the construction of the Manchester Ship Canal. Graphic Designer Alice Roberts has produced all the illustrations and artwork.
While this is Alice’s fourth children’s book to be published, it is a first for Jane and the book aims to present a real celebration of some key northern history.
The Amazon description reads: “This is a story that is 36 miles long and took six years to create. The ordinary people who built the North of England feature in these colourful pages.
“Rooted in a desire to provide for family, Davy experiences friendship, hardship, disaster and joy in the pursuit of his dream to build something big. A tale embedded in the earth, this story celebrates the engineering majesty of the industrial revolution and upraises the unknown champions who enabled it.”
