What’s the story in Balamory? Kim knows!

The star of one of children’s TV‘s most loved shows is using her own experiences of disability to help children understand what it’s like to be different and how to embrace their own uniqueness.

Kim Tserkezie, who played Penny Pocket in the hit CBeebies series Balamory, has written her first children’s book, ‘Toys for Tomorrow’, about young Millie, a wheelchair user who has a love for adventure and an amazing Grandad who helps her see how, with a little guidance, even the cheekiest little ones can channel their energy into something positive and wonderful.

The book is the first in a series entitled The Wheelie Wonderful Life of Millie Monroe. Kim is now taking the time to talk to children in Northumberland about the book, her experiences of disability and her success.
