To coincide with World Book Day, 2 March 2017, Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens is launching a collection of short stories and poems written by eight celebrity supporters: actor David Harewood, actress Fay Ripley, musician Nathan Sykes, boyband The Vamps, actress Hermione Norris, author The Unmumsy Mum, actress Charlotte Ritchie and soap star Matthew Wolfenden. The Little Book of Big Heroes includes stories of heroism and bravery, to reflect the strength that children are forced to display when faced with a cancer diagnosis.  From David Harewood’s story about a young spy who saves his city from aliens, to Matthew Wolfenden’s poem about a dinosaur who loses his roar, and Fay Ripley’s story about a boy with a rather extraordinary nose, each story takes the reader on a journey of challenge and adventure. The book, aimed at children aged 7-11, is available to download on Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens’ website from Thursday 2 March.  Any donations received will go towards vital research to find new and kinder treatments for young people facing cancer.
