The Ironbridge Ogre book Launch image
The Ironbridge Ogre is a young children's mythical story book set in the heart of Telford, Shropshire.
It is written and illustrated by Toni Sian Williams - illustrator of local legendary tale 'The Wrekin Giant'.

The story has been created in celebration of 50 years of Telford – children will enjoy a charming tale, as its characters go to visit lots of wonderful places in Telford.

Every primary school in Telford has received two copies of the book.

In addition to the books, schools have also received 50 daffodil bulbs for their school garden and Telford 50 Library cards for each child, as a special gift from Telford & Wrekin Council to celebrate.

£1 from each book sale goes back into the community to local charities and causes around Telford.
