Merrill Wisconsin Elementary School Student Has Book Published

Link to March 9 Wausau Daily Herald article, "Merrill Washington Elementary student pens first book".

Excerpt: The Washington Elementary School library's youngest author also is one of its current students.

Fifth-grader Saksham "Sunny" Bhandari, 11, has a book "A Trip Through the Galaxy" in the school library's collection.


"It was just kind of like a dream come true," said Sunny, about being a published author.

Sunny wrote the book last year at the school, with his fourth-grade teacher, Lowie Schultz, serving as editor.

Sunny said Schultz helped Sunny combine his two passions, astronomy and writing, into one.

As of Monday the 31-page book about the solar system has been checked out nine times by Sunny's peers since the book was added to the library in September.
