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.
