World Book Day Story Makers Show 2022

Story Makers Show: World Book Day 2022

Watch our free Story Makers Show with your class, and join some of our Puffin authors and illustrators on imaginative story making missions! The 30 minute show is now available to view on-demand.

  • Create magical stories with Greg James and Chris Smith using Dream Machine Tokens to spark imaginations
  • Think and draw BIG with Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola, creating a pledge for a small change that could make a big difference.
  • Debate and design the characters that would make it onto their World Book Day Dream Team with Priscilla Mante

You can find every resource needed for each story making mission in our accompanying Mission Pack, which you can download at the bottom of this page. There’s an overview of each mission, and some handy teacher tips on how to use the resources included as part of the show and for future lessons focused on creative writing, storytelling and reading for pleasure.

The event is streamed through YouTube Premiere, and a YouTube player is embedded in the Puffin Schools website in order to stream. Please check your school’s website permissions to ensure that YouTube isn’t blocked.
