The Story Adventure!

Cas is the author of the HARVEY DREW AND THE BIN MEN FROM OUTER SPACE series and she has just finished writing her third book with YOU, by writing a chapter every week for ten weeks.

Loads of you helped Cas fend off the Evil Editor and got ideas in the story, which means your user name will get printed in the back of the book when it's published. Here's more about how it works.

To be the first to hear about the next Story Adventure, make sure your email address is correct!
