Celebrating Children's Book Week... at speed!

Starting in September 2014, a new author will be writing a Story Adventure with you. CAS LESTER writes the HARVEY DREW AND THE BIN MEN FROM OUTER SPACE series and she will be posting a new chapter of her third HARVEY DREW book every Monday, and YOU have to help. Or the Evil Editor will be very mean to Cas!

If your idea gets used, your user name will get printed in the back of the book when it is published. We're also going to build a ship's manual for the Toxic Spew with your help, which will also be included in the actual book.
