“I am excited to write my own books because I don’t just want to read other people’s books, I want to do more.” Destiny Likambi

Destiny Likambi is a six-year-old British girl from Liverpool, England. She is
currently the world’s youngest author to have published two books and an international best-selling author, who published her debut book, “The Girl on The Journey” and wrote two other books at age, five.

She’s the youngest of three loving and talented siblings (who are also best-selling authors) and an inspiring, confident and courageous young girl, and positive role model for children globally. Her passion for storytelling and art goes back to her nursery days when she always looked forward to telling everyone about her day and often brought home drawings and paintings. She also loves reading, listening to bedtime stories, and making up her own stories before bed.

All of the illustrations in her books are done by Destiny herself in collaboration with a professional artist, giving an added element of character to her work that matches her own fun and outgoing personality. The art, story, and title of each book in the series “Destiny Books” is chosen by Destiny, who already has a third and fourth book on the way!


I love reading and my books are for children who are learning to read and who love reading just like me.” Destiny Likambi
