'The Little Book of Big Heroes' is a collection of short stories and poems written by celebrities, celebrating bravery and strength.


Welcome to The Little Book of Big Heroes.

Take a trip to a magical world with our online collection of short stories and poems.

From a young spy who saves his city from aliens, to a dinosaur who loses his roar, the stories all celebrate bravery and strength and show that heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

Every day, around 11 young people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer, and the strength that they and their families show under very difficult circumstances is inspirational.  The good news is that today, more of them are surviving than ever before, and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of this progress. But there are still around 540 cancer deaths in young people each year, and research is the key to changing this.

If you enjoy the stories, please donate to our Kids & Teens campaign. With your help we will find new and kinder treatments for young people facing cancer.
