Description

A young boy has a mind full of wonderful stories, but when he gives them to his teachers his pages come back covered in red spelling corrections. It seems his dyslexia will always hold him back from succeeding as a writer. Then a new teacher arrives at the school. Mr. Watson tells magical stories and draws wonderful pictures. He makes his students feel safe, and most importantly, he doesn't cover the boy's stories in red pen. At last, the boy feels comfortable enough to just write! My Storee celebrates acceptance in a world that can often seem too difficult for dyslexic children to enter because of the rules that surround it. It highlights the magic and importance of ideas which are too often forgotten because of an over-emphasis on rules, structure and spelling. It is also the story of the author, Paul Russell who as a dyslexic boy was inspired to become the writer and teacher he is today because of one teacher who believed in him.

The author

Paul Russell is a primary teacher, artist, playwright and children’s author of Grandma Forgets and My Storee, among others, with Grandma Forgets making the CBCA list of notable picture books in 2018. He is passionate about children’s literacy and building young appetites for the written word. He has a daughter who has worries of her own and he wrote her this story so they could talk about worries together.

Aśka is an energetic visual storyteller and a science communicator who is a passionate advocate of visual literacy. She has illustrated ten published books, makes comics, and is a regular contributor to The School Magazine and other children’s publications. Her other books include The Incurable Imagination and My Storee, both published by EK Books.
