Eight years old author hopes to sell her stories to save dolphins

The eight-year-old dolphin lover hopes to sell her stories called Dolphy Saves The Planet - Bit by Bit, to raise money to protect the UK's shorelines.The stories were illustrated by Amy's friend, 14-year-old Sophie Stevens from Solihull.Katherine Stephenson from the Marine Conservation Society thinks Amy is a very determined young girl.

She said:" The sky's the limit with Amy. It would be great for her to go out and see these animals."The Lapworth Primary School pupil has not yet found anyone to print her stories. She is looking for someone to do the job free of charge so all money raised from the books can be used to protect her favourite creatures.

Miss Stephenson hopes that someone will get involved with the book, by printing it, designing it or covering the cost of producing it in either book or leaflet form.She said:"It is such a lovely thing to get involved with."The girls can have their moment in the spotlight.

"It would be a brilliant thing for them."Anyone wanting to help Amy should contact Katherine Stephenson on 01989 566 017 or email her at wishing to support the society can join online by phoning 01989 566017.
