A Spooky Tale

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?

Listen to the story on You Tube

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.

A walk in 1997

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.

A walk in 2017

"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!

There is even a Special Edition.

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