Ten-year-old Wanstead resident Riku Fryderyk has published his first book, which tells the story of a young prince who escapes from his castle at night to discover that the midnight hour doesn’t have to be frightening.

“In this story, I want to help children who are afraid of the dark by making them think differently about what might be there that they cannot see,” explained Riku, who wrote the story when he was eight.

The Witching Hour is published by Pegasus and available in paperback.
