Katy the Shooting Star

by Dame Kelly Holmes, Glyn Walden and Mike Webb
£5.99   paperback  Big Park Books (2008)

Katy the Shooting Star by Dame Kelly Holmes, Glyn Walden and Mike Webb The first in a delightful series of books for children and their parents, tells the story of Katy the shooting star.
In Big Park by the side of the old house lives Katy the cat.
She is different from other cats because she only has one eye...

"So often you hear stories about the children who are left on the side lines. Maybe you were one of those. Well Katy's character is inspired by a real girl who had a hidden talent. Glyn saw the amazing ability of someone not normally given the chance, and who was always left out of the sports team. When given the chance she shone brighter than a shooting star.
Sport is such a wonderful way to bring out the very best in young people. It can shape their future, help them grow in confidence, teach them new skills and most of all just be themselves.
I spent many years trying hard and doing my best to achieve success. My message to all children is that we cannot all be the best, but we can all do our best. Dream like Katy, and maybe one day you will be a star too!"
(Kelly Holmes)
