A group of children from Keswick School have written a book.

'The Reader', tells the story of one book's journey through time, the people who read it and what it thinks about those people.

The book has just been launched and it also has an ISBN number. That means it can be sold in bookshops and on Amazon, something that's caused great excitement for the pupils.
