Saeed Rashed AlMheiri

At just five years old, Saeed Rashed AlMheiri became the youngest author in the world, holding not one but two Guinness World Records. The first record recognises him as the youngest author, and the second acknowledges him as the youngest author to write a book series.


His creativity knows no bounds, and he has penned three captivating books including The Elephant Saeed and the Bear, an exploration of the power of kindness, emphasising how it can triumph over anger and the importance of being a kind-hearted individual to build lasting friendships. His second book My True Friend beautifully demonstrates the unwavering loyalty of a bear, proving that he is a true friend to the elephant. AlMheiri's latest book, Ice Melting, centres on an elephant who raises thought-provoking questions about the melting polar ice and its consequences.
