A dyslexic schoolboy from Cornwall writes a book to raise money for his school.

Dylan Masters also has a condition called verbal dyspraxia and had trouble communicating when he started at St Breward Primary.

Now the 11 year old's story about life in the village on Bodmin Moor has been published.

He tells Pirate FM it means a lot: "People who have a look at it, they would know about St Breward. Basically we talked about carnival week and all the people who joined in with that and also my family.

Dylan, who moves up to Sir James Smith's School in Camelford in September, says St Breward is lovely: "It's quite fun because you can get to go outside and have walks with your friends around the village. You might think it's a big village but it's not; it's friendly."
