  • Authors:

    Ben Lawrence, who is now 12 years old, lives in rural Shropshire in England.

    His main passions are football, motor sport and photography. Ben’s idea for ‘Berrington — the spider who wore glasses’ came from his own experience of being diagnosed with a lazy eye and needing to wear a patch when he was a youngster.

    Ben hopes that the Berrington book will encourage other children to go and have their eyes tested and have treatment for a lazy eye if they have one. He also hopes that the story will help kids understand why some of their schoolmates need to wear an eye patch and be kind to them about it.
