Director Sally Goldsworthy approached me about working together with tall beardy man Philip Ardagh on a story: Philip would tell the story, and I'd work with their team to create a series of interactive pictures to go with it online. Philip writes (on Facebook, which I just nicked): DOWN THE PLUG HOLE, written by me and illustrated by Sarah, is of course, brilliant. The rest of the stories may be a bit ropey, but who cares? There's always ours to look forward to and then back on AND it's an official part of the Cultural Olympiad... the part bearded/part American part.
The Discover Centre plans to unveil them week by week, along with a great programme of stuff that encourages kids to make their own stories. Illustrators include fab people such as Chris Riddell, David Roberts and Guy Parker-Rees, and excellent writers Michael Rosen, Malorie Blackman, David Almond, Jamila Gavin, Andy Stanton and four kids from east London. Here are more StoryCloud details, and I'll give you a shout when the whole thing goes live on 18 June!
