Christopher Beale completed his novel "This and Last Season's Excursions" when he was six years and 118 days old. The book, which is published in the UK November 25th, is about a boy and his favourite stuffed animals - Biscuit the puppy, Daisy the kitten, and the fierce Big Hinnies - as they "rescue owls, fight lions and search for a mysterious moving city, Quarles".

Christopher, who lives in Switzerland, speaks English and Italian and is currently not only working on his second novel, but also translating This and Last Season's Excursions into Italian. [via The Independent]
