Morville inspires book

A former teacher is launching a new career as a children’s author after publishing her first book. The new venture for Sarah Griffiths follows the official launch of Douglas’s Trousers at Wenlock Books. The story follows a young boy who helps to save his school from closure when his magic trousers come to life! The inspiration for Sarah’s new book came from her former teaching days at Morville Primary near Bridgnorth.

Sarah said, “I’ve been writing as a hobby for a number of years and I wrote this particular story a few years ago when I was still teaching. In 2008 the school was facing the threat of closure. I remember it being a really difficult time for everyone. One day I heard a colleague shouting ‘Douglas, pick up those trousers!’ and in an instant the idea for a story about Douglas and his magic trousers saving the school came to me. I’m now really looking forward to sharing my story with children across Shropshire and I cannot wait to visit schools and inspire a new generation of writers.”
