Young visitors to The Station have work published in book

Sue Dewhurst with the original cartoon relay book.

Young visitors to The Shop at The Station in Richmond this summer have had their work published into a book.

The cartoon relay book was started by artist and The Station shop manager Sue Dewhurst and ran throughout the summer holidays this year.

Visitors were invited to draw a cartoon in the book to carry on the story. 40 pages later is a book packed full amazing adventures involving characters like disco-dancing spiders, kings disguised as cats, tea-drinking bunnies and a pigeon called Dave.

This story continues after the adverts:


Sue said: “The popularity of the relay saw children returning again and again to The Shop to see what had happened since their last entry. The book is jam packed full of adventure and ingenious ideas from our young writers. Plus the odd famous local artist – see if you can spot them.

“It is so good to see children excited about being creative. We are so pleased to have produced this book and enable our young visitors to become published authors.’

The limited edition book can be purchased from The Shop at a cost of £7.50.
