StoryWorld

Have you ever wanted to tell a story, but not known how to begin? Pick up a set of the StoryWorld Cards and discover the world of storytelling at your fingertips!

“A very ingenious idea . . . I’ve seldom seen so many attractive starting points (and ending points, and signposts to suggest new paths) so well presented.” Philip Pullman.

"A useful stimulus in one-to-one work with shy children.  After school story clubs might love it and for children (and parents) with a yen for story-creation it should provide hours of fun." School Librarian Journal

" … perfect for encouraging reluctant readers: … beautifully illustrated cards describing characters, places and objects." Angels and Urchins Magazine
