More about B B Taylor

B B adores books and loves to share her illustrated tomes with her readers.

In her latest project Look At Our Book, B B – along with Birmingham based financial firm Wesleyan and children’s mental health charity Partnership for Children – has been working with Year 8 pupils at Four Dwellings Academy in Quinton.

Five teams of pupils drew up outlines for a book aimed at Year 6 pupils about the challenges of the transition to senior school. The teams then presented their ideas to a panel of judges including radio presenter Ed James and Michelin-starred chef Glynn Purnell at Wesleyan headquarters in Birmingham.

The winning team was Whizz Writers with an ancient Egyptian themed story, Curse of the Nomed.

B B is now bringing the young writers’ ideas to the page, and has already completed the first draft of their book! The book will be released in May and sold to raise funds for Partnership for Children.
