Bella Jay Dark, a 5-year-old little girl from Britain has taken it to the next level by not only writing but also publishing her own book. She broke the record for the youngest female individual to publish a book. Her book, The Lost Cat, sold more than a thousand copies. 

According to the official website of the Guinness World Records, “Dark collaborated with her mother, Chelsie Syme, to write and draw the book, which was published by Ginger Fyre Press, a publisher in Portland. The book tells the story of Snowy, a kitten who gets lost and learns a valuable lesson,” they write.

Dark’s mother, Ms. Syme said, “Both her dad and I are very proud. It’s about a cat that goes out getting lost and realises she should not go out without her mum, so it has got a good message to it. She has done all the drawings by herself apart from one towards the back her older sister Lacey-May produced.”

This little girl spent about five days writing the entire story along with the illustrations. She hopes her book will “teach children not to go outside on their own at night time.”

With a sequel to Snowy’s story already in the works, we can’t wait to read Bella’s next book!
