Signed Stories has partnered with the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) to produce a signed version of their latest children’s book.

The Quest for the Cockle Implant is written by nine-year-old deaf child Maya Wasserman and illustrated by deaf artist Lucy Rogers.

The story features a deaf mermaid who wears two cochlear implants. It’s a diverse and inclusive tale that features characters who use British Sign Language (BSL) to communicate. 

A visually signed version has been produced by the Signed Stories team and is available as a free download on their award-winning app. 

The story also comes with two fun learning games and a set of dictionary signs to aid learning.

The free Signed Stories app is available on the Apple App Store.
