Tora's Story

Tora Profile

It’s been two years since we met bubbly seven year old Tora during an exhibition at the Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds. Tora, who has the condition, aniridia, has been enjoying her books ever since. She likes to listen to a variety of authors via streaming on her ipad or on memory stick. Her favourite authors include Roald Dahl and Calibre patron, Anne Fine, OBE. These are some of the books that she’s been listening to and would recommend for other children: Roald Dahl: Esio Trot (615736); The Enormous Crocodile (615070); B.F.G (615458) and Anne’s The Diary of a Killer Cat (615918).

Tora, who is a braille and cane user, also loves to draw. At a recent aniridia conference, she was the life and soul of the crèche, playing with other children and creating some wonderful paintings. Tora says she likes Calibre because she loves listening to lots of different books and finds them really exciting.
