WORLD Radio - Kicker - The world’s youngest children’s author

A British author set a record in the Guinness Book of World Records


MYRNA BROWN, HOST: British author Bella Jay Dark landed in the Guiness Book of World Records with her new book called The Lost Cat.

The children’s book, which she also illustrated herself tells the story of Snowy, a kitten who gets lost. The book delivers a powerful and positive safety message to young readers.

Speaking with British TV station 5-News, the author herself read the opening line of the book.

DARK: Snowy lives at home with her mom in a land called Cat Land.

As you can tell, Ms. Dark is a budding young author. Very young. She’s five years old.

She is the youngest female published author on the planet, according to Guinness. To be recognized in the record book, she had to sell at least a thousand copies of The Lost Cat, which she did.

Guinness representative Chelsie Syme said she looks forward to Bella’s future releases, adding, “Watch out for The Lost Cat 2.”

It’s The World and Everything in It.
