Behind the story

In the Spring and Summer of 2015, young patients from Birmingham Children’s Hospital helped to provide the inspiration for a new picture book, The Unstoppable Maggie McGee, written by Juliet Clare Bell (from Moseley, Birmingham) and illustrated by Dave Gray (from Coventry).


To read the story behind the story and how the children from the hospital and Kings Heath Primary School were involved, follow this link.


Wesleyan, a neighbour of the hospital in Birmingham city centre, is covering all the costs of the publication, meaning every penny generated through sales will go straight to the hospital.
