Here are some of the activities schools have taken part in based around my Smelly Troll series:
I've written a series of books focusing on a small group of ten-year-old troll hunters, one of which is rather inconveniently a troll himself.
The series is most popular among children aged 8-10 but is also ideal to read aloud to younger ones.
Fifteen schools collaborated to write and publish a paperback, Monster Avengers. The children were involved in every step of the process, including creating the characters, plot threads and even chose the size of the book.
A stinky, squelchy adventure packed with secret dens, tree climbing, troll traps and lots and lots of revolting smells. (Read more)
A slimy, smelly, sausage-slinging adventure packed with mischief, troll traps and a really reckless wacky scientist. (Read more)
A slippery, icy adventure packed with hideous trolls, winter sports and lots and lots of snotacular calamities. (Read more)
There are currently three Smelly Troll chapter books and a short story.
