“We know that nurturing a child’s natural curiosity and creativity from a young age can have a massive impact on their development and on their adult lives.”
Wayne Hemingway

Some of the UK’s most inspirational and creative people including Dame Judi Dench, Sir Terence Conran, Carol Ann Duffy, David Shrigley, Heston Blumenthal, Stephen Merchant, Benedict Cumberbatch, Maxine Peake and Frank Cottrell Boyce have been telling us who or what inspired them as a child to help raise awareness of the impact creativity can have on a child’s life, in support of the children’s charity Curious Minds.

46 unique and personal tales have been collected together in an illustrated book, with a foreword by Wayne Hemingway and drawings from 15 illustrators including Steven Appleby (Loomus, The Guardian), Oliver Jeffers (Lost and Found), Nick Sharratt (The Story of Tracy Beaker), Al Murphy and Emily Forgot.

All proceeds raised from the purchase of this book will support creative projects for young people.

The concept for the book was devised by creative collective Dorothy and its development was assisted by Arts Council England.
