Alfie Dormand and his book The Monkey That Stole A Bus' . See SWNS story SWPLbook. An eight-year-old boy has written and illustrated a storybook himself to help raise the money to buy a new wheelchair. Alfie Dormand, 8, began writing his book The Monkey That Stole A Bus during lockdown after being inspired by a day out at Paignton Zoo. He even illustrated the book himself using a computer program to create colourful drawings to accompany his imaginative tale. Through sales of his storybook on Amazon and donation via his Just Giving page (https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/electricwheels4alfie), Alfie has raised over £1000 towards the costs of the new electric £3000 wheelchair which would give him greater independence than his current manual wheelchair.
