PRESS RELEASE: Gifted & Talented 12-Year-Old Caleb Likambi From Liverpool Releases Debut Children’s Book

Reading is such fun. It has the power to expand your imagination and take you into different parts and cultures of the world at the same time.” Caleb Likambi

Coming from a family of talented young writers, Caleb Likambi debuts as an author at the age of 12 with his book Tammy and the Shipwreck, which follows the adventure of Tammy as he follows the clues to hunt down his great-great-grandfather’s treasure.

Challenged earlier this year by his younger sister and the nation’s youngest author Destiny Likambi to publish a book, Caleb wrote Tammy and the Shipwreck in just under a week and, with this debut, joins his sisters as one of the UK’s youngest authors.

All of the illustrations in Tammy and the Shipwreck, are done by Caleb and revamped by a professional illustrator, and the book is set to be released in January 2022.

"Never allow anyone or anything to stop your God-given dreams." - Caleb Likambi
