A team of girls from Abbey Gate Sixth Form College have set up a children’s book company for this year’s Young Enterprise competition.
The team called ‘Wolf Tales’ is made up of 12 local girls, aged between 16 and 17, including Eilidh Pilkington and Ellie Nicholas who have written the book and Kate Dawson who is the illustrator.
Their first book, 'Candyfloss Clouds', is on its way through the publication process now and is a story about a young girl called Abbey and her friends and their adventure to the magical world of Candyfloss Clouds.
As part of the project the girls have to market and sell their product and return a profit, all of which will be donated to local charity Stick n' Step, which helps people suffering from cerebral palsy.
Ellis Doak, 17 from Saughall said: “We aim to create exciting children's short stories and have appealed to a large audience ranging from the ages three to eight.
“We have managed to achieve this target audience by using an imaginative story that will power young children's minds.
“Our books have been designed not only for parents to read to their children but for young minds to have a go too.”
