Hephzibah Akinwale, a remarkable 10-year-old girl of Black heritage hailing from the United Kingdom, has recently etched her name in history by smashing the world record for the lengthiest fiction book catered to children. Titled “Chronicles of The Time Keepers: Whisked Away,” her magnum opus boasts an impressive 58,000 words. 

The narrative unfolds in a middle-grade fiction adventure, where Hephzibah assumes the protagonist’s role, embarking on a journey through enigmatic dreams that blur the lines between imagination and reality, as reported by Shine My Crown. 

Currently enrolled at Little Thetford C of E Primary School in East Cambridgeshire, England, Hephzibah outshone the previous record-holder, 11-year-old Manikya Sanghi, acclaimed for the award-winning “Wizard of Sansanadia,” which comprised 44,000 words. 

Yet, Hephzibah’s accomplishments transcend the realm of breaking records. Her mother, Chika, is confident that her daughter’s achievements will kindle a creative flame among children globally. 

Remarkably, Hephzibah’s prodigious talents have also earned her a prestigious position among the top 20 young individuals selected to participate in the celebration of the Coronation of King Charles III by the East Cambridgeshire District Council.
