Kornvalaj Libroj la BBC:

A series of Cornish language storybooks for children commissioned by MAGA, the Cornish Language Partnership, have been launched in Cornwall.

The picture books, written by Cornish author Will Coleman, are based in the fictional village of Porth.

Through a Bookstart partnership every Year 3 child in the county will receive one free copy of one of the six titles. MAGA will also be organising training for teachers wishing to learn more about using the materials in class.

"These stories and their accompanying DVD have been piloted at both Lanlivery and Marlborough Primary Schools with great success," said Jenefer Lowe, development manager for the Cornish Language Partnership.
