Newbottle Primary all stars

I recently ran a writing workshop with some wonderful kids from Newbottle Primary school and promised to put their beginnings to stories online - here they are - quiate a lot of talent here, I'm sure you'll agree.
Thanks again to you all for making the event such fun - and I will pick a winning beginning to receive a copy "Super Maxwell and the Burning Boys" when it comes out -which will be very, very soon...
