Olympic Champion turns children’s author

Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill is set to release her first book.

The London 2012 champ has created a new children’s series called Evie’s Magic Bracelet with children’s author Elen Caldecott.

They have signed a deal for seven books with the first in the series, The Silver Unicorn, due to be released in March.


In the book, Evie is sent a magical bracelet from her Grandma Iris in Jamaica. Three further titles will be released in 2017 and the final three in 2018.

Ennis-Hill said: “I have so many great memories of being a little girl. My friends and I spent lots of time exploring and having adventures where my imagination used to run riot.

“It has been so much fun working with Elen to go back to that world of stories and imagination and share it with readers. I very much hope that the books will inspire and encourage them to look for the magic in everyday life.”
