Rebecca Westcott

Rebecca Westcott hails from Chester, her place of birth. Her journey into teaching led her to Exeter University, where she received her training as an educator. Her teaching career has taken her to a range of intriguing locations, one of the most notable being a Category C male prison. Interestingly, Rebecca's passion for writing began at the young age of eight when she started keeping a diary. Little did she know then that these diary entries would play a crucial role in shaping her future as a writer. In her debut novel, "Dandelion Clocks," Rebecca cleverly incorporates some of the more amusing and cringe-worthy extracts from her childhood and teenage diaries as the diary entries of her characters. However, her most embarrassing memories remain safely tucked away unless she decides to draw inspiration from them for her next literary endeavor. Currently, Rebecca continues to inspire young minds as a primary school teacher while residing in Dorset with her husband and three children. Her literary journey includes five books for children, including collaborative works like "Can You See Me?" and "Do You Know Me?" written alongside the talented 11-year-old, Libby Scott.

Can You See Me? audiobook

With diary entries written by 11-year-old Libby Scott, based on her own experiences of autism, this pioneering book, written in collaboration with esteemed author Rebecca Westcott, has been widely praised for its realistic portrayal of autism.

Tally is 11 years old, and she's just like her friends. Well, sometimes she is. If she tries really hard to be. Because there's something that makes Tally not the same as her friends. Something she can't cover up, no matter how hard she tries: Tally is autistic.

Tally's autism means there are things that bother her even though she wishes they didn't. It means that some people misunderstand her and feel frustrated by her.

People think that because Tally's autistic, she doesn't realise what they're thinking, but Tally sees and hears - and notices - all of it. And, honestly? That's not the easiest thing to live with. 

Endearing, insightful and warmly uplifting, Can You See Me? is a story of autism, empathy and kindness that will touch listeners of all ages.

My daughter loves her new voxblock and listens to the stories over and over again. Wonderful product and have already recommended to friends. Love the mini books too and the fact there's no wifi. My 6 year old daughter was able to use it directly from the box with no input from me..it was charged and ready to go!

Voxblock has been such an amazing gift for my niece, and I love the fact it’s a never ending gift idea being able to get her new stories for her library. She really enjoys spending time listening to books and is happy to replay stories. She’s even got the animals (dog and cat) chilled out listening with her.
