The sculpture is intended to inspire the children to read and so depicts a stack of books. On the top of the stack there are two open books out of which a representation of a story appears.

I saw your sculpture today for the first time that is in the University of Birmingham’s grounds – and I was really taken with it. I particularly liked the mermaid.

A lovely sculpture – a beautiful thing to discover in the sunshine!

I’ve been meaning to write to thank you for the amazing throne. It was an amazing sight and exactly what we were hoping for.

It is a huge hit with both the kids and adults passing through; a great photo attraction.
