Glenzier's story gets an international audience

Children at the International School of Tanganyika were the first readers of Our Island Community when I visited them for some creative writing workshops in Dar es Salaam this week. And so the story came home to its East African setting. The verdict? 'The story made me feel like I was in it,' said one pupil. 'I felt frightened when there was a fire on the island,' said another. And they left us with a question: 'It was fantastic story and how did you write it with those children?'
We hope they will now be writing reviews of it, busy writing their own versions of the story, or writing a new final chapter for the Glenzier children to read. To download the whole story, including the children's illustrations, go to
