8-Year-Old Puts Self-Written Book on Library Shelf Hoping for Views; Now There’s a Waiting List to Read It


It is 81 pages long, handwritten, and illustrated by Dillon Helbig.
He came up with a novel idea for getting his unpublished work in front of the general public. Dillon Helbig, of Boise, Idaho, says all he did was take it to the library.

“I put the book on one of the shelves and then left that area and went to another location where I got another book to read,” he said.

The mother of Dillon commented, “He said he was going to place his book in the library.” “Oh, Dillon, you’re so silly,’ we thought. “We didn’t believe he would actually follow through with it and that this was his ultimate plan.”

Library workers discovered the 81-page, hand-written, hand-illustrated hardcover book. They added Dillon’s art to their collection because they were so pleased with it. As of last week, 125 people were waiting to read “The Adventures of Dillon Helbig’s Crismis.”.

Despite knowing their son had a vivid imagination, the Helbigs were not prepared for the reaction to his debut novel. It has already been offered for publication.

As his father, Alex Helbig, recalls, “He simply wanted someone to read his work.” “And he believed if he got his book into the library, people would read it.”

The book and his narrative have received a lot of attention, so we’re happy about it.”

It appears that Dillon’s career is just getting started, as he has already stated that he is working on another novel.
