He is the author worth a book on himself.

Jayden Hewitt is getting ready to release his first ever novella, which he has penned at only nine-years-old.

Talented Jayden, of Oak Primary School in Crosland Moor, took only a couple of weeks to finish the 28-page adventure story Bettie and the Magical Time Machine, which will soon be stocked in bookshops and online.

He will become one of the youngest writers to do a book signing at Huddersfield’s Waterstones, when it takes place this Saturday from 11am to noon.

Jayden, whose dad Simon P Hewitt is also a children’s author, is an avid writer and wrote the entire book himself in his spare time at home.

“I’m really excited”, said Jayden. “It’s my first ever book.

“I came up with the idea because I’ve watched a lot of time travelling movies but it’s usually men who are the time travellers.

“So I thought I’d one with a woman instead. It’s about Bettie, who’s an archaeologist and finds a time machine while digging one day.

9-year-old Jayden Hewitt reads his book Bettie and The Magical Time Machine to friends Lincoln Clough and Craig Hartley at Oak Primary School, Crosland Moor, Huddersfield.

“She tries to get it to work and travels to different times to see the dinosaurs, ancient Egypt and more.”

Jayden has always had the writing bug.

“I’ve always liked writing. I just do it because I feel like it. It’s something fun to do when I’m bored.

“I’m already working on my next book, which will be a different adventure story.”

Bev Taylor, a spokeswoman for the school, said: “I think it’s really brilliant.

“We’ve not had a pupil do anything like this before.

“It just shows what our children are capable of.”
