The Story of Ironie
Posted on by Website Administrator
Today is International Children’s Book Day!
We’d like to share with you our favourite children’s story…Ironie.
Ironie by Emily Capstick is based on The Story of Ironie, which was written and illustrated by Harry Brearley for his god-daughter Barbara.
Harry Brearley discovered stainless steel in 1913 and he wrote the story to explain his scientific discovery to children. There is a copy of Harry’s original manuscript in the collection at Kelham Island Museum.
You can download the story below. Enjoy, stay safe and keep reading!
Love, Kelham Island Museum
