To dedicate a book to someone is to give them a very special present.
Who would you like to dedicate your Write A Book to?
C.S. Lewis who wrote the Narnia Series of books,
dedicated one of them;
‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’
to his god daughter Lucy.
Here is what he wrote:
To Lucy Barfield;
My dear Lucy,
I wrote this story for you,
but when I began it
I had not realized that girls grow
quicker than books.
As a result you are already too old
for fairy tales,
and by the time it is printed and bound
you will be older still.
But some day you will be old enough
to start reading fairy tales again.
You can then take it down
from some upper shelf, dust it,
and tell me what you think of it.
I shall probably be too deaf to hear,
and too old to understand a word you say,
but I shall still be
your affectionate Godfather,
Roald Dahl dedicated many of his books to his children but
he dedicated ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’
to ‘Doctors everywhere’.
J.K. Rowling wrote this dedication in a Z shape
(like the scar on Harry Potter’s forehead)
at the beginning of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:’
The dedication of this book is split seven ways:
to Neil, to Jessica, to David, to Kenzie, to Di, to Anne,
and to you,
if you have stuck with Harry until the very end.
