Keep an eye on www.storyquest.org.uk, even if your school hasn't been able to get tickets for next week's regional events or next Friday's finale at the Royal Albert Hall, where a "baton story" for Children's Book Week will be created by Malorie Blackman, Meg (Princess Diaries) Cabot, Eoin (Artemis Fowl) Colfer, Kevin Crossley-Holland, Michael Morpurgo, William Nicholson, Louis Sachar and Jacqueline Wilson. Resources to encourage reading and creative writing by Year 7 pupils will soon be available on the site, plus recordings of key author events from the week. There are already biographies of the writers taking part and a chance to submit an email question for the authors' panel at the daily events next week (except for Northern Ireland and Scotland, yesterday and today).
