How the world began

The youngest female author to ever have her book published was Dorothy Elmhirst Straight.

Dorothy wrote the book, ‘How the World Began’ back in 1962 at just four-years-old.

She also wrote the book for her grandmother also called Dorothy (Payne Whitney) who was an American-born social activist. The book was in response to her mother’s question of “Who made the world?”. Dorothy also did her own artwork for the book too which took her just one night to complete.

The book was published by Pantheon Books in 1964.
