“The Lost Lending Library has been an amazing experience for the children and a fantastic writing stimulus” Headteacher, 2014
An interest in books leads a local librarian to a primary school, where they discuss literature and favourite books and stories. The discovery of a strange mysterious locked book and a shared love of the book ‘How to Live Forever’ by Colin Thompson leads to the mysterious arrival of the Lost Lending Library.
800 floors high and containing every book and story in the world, the library jumps from place to place and arrives where it knows it can meet great storywriters.
Pupils at the school are guided through the library by the guardian ‘Peabody’ and are inspired to write their own stories.
