A Spooky Bewbush Walk

spooky tale cover 600x600

‘A fun-filled, engaging story for young children to enjoy. A SILVER MEDAL WINNER and highly recommended.’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards 

A walk with the teacher, indeed what could possibly go wrong?

The original story was based on a walk with my class around the neighbourhood of Bewbush, Crawley. The walk led to map work and sequencing and with events that followed together with the class we wrote an imaginative tale.

Check out the real walk below

The events we imagined were put into a book and illustrated by a pupil. The book was shared with my many classes and it was always a favourite.

There is indeed a walk around the district of Bewbush. and following the publication of the book I went back to see if and how the neighbourhood had changed.

."Oh, I see you have written a book without a bus!" commented a friend.

But, look through the pages and you will see there always has to be a bus!

 

On my teaching travels the Spooky Tale has taken me on a few  different roads including A Spooky North Holmewood connection and an author day in Spain.

I have also published a Special Edition for my family

The Spooky Walk Bewbush 1997

 

The Spooky Walk, Bewbush 2017

Spooky Connections North Holmwood

Spooky Spanish Connections

There is even a Special Edition.

Just in case you are afraid and feeling unwell why not make some worry dolls too
