AN illustrator from Matchborough has released a new children’s book about the life of the late scientist Stephen Hawking.

Matt Hunt says he was delighted to be asked to illustrate the latest book in the ‘Little People, Big Dreams’ series which concentrates on real life influential figures, their upbringing and how they turned dreams into reality.

“Each book has a different illustrator, so it was a very proud moment for me to be asked to work on the Stephen Hawking edition,” said Matt.

“The idea behind the series is to educate young children on famous figures who have made a real difference in the world.”

Past books in the series have looked into the lives of Anne Frank, Audrey Hepburn and Ella Fitzgerald, to name a few.
