    Jackie French — the girl with dyslexia who became a famous author

    Jackie French — the girl with dyslexia who became a famous author

    Jackie French could read entire novels by the time she was three years old. But when she arrived at school, letters appeared back to front, and maths equations were gobbledegook. Jackie was confused, but it didn't stop her from reading, writing, or coming up with astonishingly creative tales. Jackie read everything in sight, and then decided to write her own stories. Now, she has written more than 200 books, sold millions of copies, has spread the joy of reading far and wide, and she never plans to stop.

    Narrated by star of Orange is the New Black, actor Yael Stone.
