Sussex schoolgirl's not sheepish about Shaun the Sheep story success
3:10pm Friday 15th March 2013 in News
A teenage fan of Shaun the Sheep has had her story ideas made into two episodes.
Northease Manor School pupil Maisy Catton, who has autism, drew up two story boards and sent them to the programme’s producers.
They were so taken with the 16-year-old’s work they created two episodes – The Skateboard which aired on Wednesday and The Snapshot which is due to be broadcast on CBBC at 3.10pm today (March 15).
Maisy has been paid £500 for her work, has been sent a crew T-shirt and her name is on the titles of the programmes.
Head of English at the school, near Lewes, said: “She’s been a fan of Shaun the Sheep all of her life.
“It’s an amazing achievement when you think so many adults spend their lives struggling to get established.
“Maisy has autism so it is quite incredible that she’s done all of this off her own back – independently creating the stories and sending them off herself.”
