The Amazing Jungle Adventure- A Story by Children for Children

An original story book written collaboratively by hundreds of youngsters from 10 primary schools in the Ryedale District of North Yorkshire is shortly to be published by “that company called if”. Quentin Blake described this creative writing project as “extremely valuable work” and gave the Ryedale Book Festival permission to use a specially designed illustration on the front cover of the book. 

His drawing perfectly captures, in his iconic and much-loved style, the idea of the story being passed from one child to another. Children’s writer Beth Dexter-Smith worked in 10 schools to inspire the children to become “real live authors and illustrators” and she transported the story, as it developed, from one school to the next. 

The Yorkshire based company and established designer and manufacturer of book related gifts “that company called if” then took the children’s words and illustrations, donated their design and print expertise and produced the properly published storybook. 

The Amazing Jungle Adventure will be sold at the forthcoming Ryedale Book Festival in Malton on 19th October to raise funds for the Festival’s future out-reach work. See for full programme details of a family friendly literature event.
