Students at The Teresian Primary School in Donnybrook, Co Dublin have written a new mystery book that will go on sale on Amazon shortly.
The book, entitled The Catas-Trophy, tells the story of the theft of a basketball trophy from a school in London, and was written by all of the students in 5th Class, aged between 11 and 12-years-old.
The book is 140 pages long, and the 29 girls all contributed a chapter, with votes taking place in class to see which way the story should go and how they should proceed. Speaking to UTV Ireland, class teacher Caoimhe Ní Fhaoláin said it was a great exercise for the class, but the quality of the final product has really been surprising: "Their attention to detail and commitment to the project has astonished me; they have worked together to fully develop the characters and ensure that the plots are flawless throughout".
The book has been published by a local printer, and physical copies went on sale within the school, but you can download your own ebook version from Amazon. Proceeds from the sale will go to the Irish Cancer Society and Down Syndrome Ireland, so you don't have a reason not to buy.
