Description 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.
