“This competition always has a high number of entries, so to be Highly Commended is a great achievement for Lisa”

Gill Sampson, Course Leader

Lisa’s book, which she wrote and illustrated, focuses on teaching children how to cope and understand grief when losing a loved one.

The story follows a friendship between a gull and a cat and what happens after that friendship sadly comes to an end.
