The Libraries Week stories continue ...

The interactive stories that our Chatterbooks Groups are writing to celebrate Libraries Week are getting more and more exciting!

Chertsey, Cranleigh, Dorking and Reigate Chatterbooks have now added to the stories that were passed to them.  The mysterious hooded figure is still lurking in one story, and the robotic cat has morphed into a fire-breathing dragon!  Meanwhile, book characters have come to life and are running amok in the library, and a huge creature with 3 eyes, 2 noses, 2 mouths and 4 arms has put in an appearance.

We can hardly wait to see where our next Groups - Camberley, Caterham Valley, Egham and Haslemere - will take the stories,

Chatterbooks Story Project for Libraries' Week

Wow! The 4 Chatterbooks Groups that have started our collaborative story-writing project for Libraries' Week have come up with some fantastic openings and we can't wait to see how the stories continue.

Dittons, Guildford, Redhill and Woking groups were all given the same opening sentences of a story and have each taken it in their own direction.  We now have mysterious squeaks and cackles, thunder and lightning, a mysterious hooded figure, a transparent wall with nothing but black beyond, and even a robotic cat!

Now it's time for Chertsey, Cranleigh, Dorking and Reigate groups to continue the stories that have been passed to them.  We can't wait to read the next instalments!

Keep a look out on the Chatterbooks blog for more updates on the project, and the finished stories.
