The world of storytelling is at your fingertips in this ingenious package. The book shaped box in which you’ll find some inspirational cards is a toolkit for the imagination that’s designed to inspire storytellers of all ages. In this pack you’ll find over 25 cards depicting images from The Mad Professor’s Workshop – characters, places and objects plus there’s a little book that will provide you with even more inspiration if you’re struggling with your story.
The storyteller joins up one of the many starting points provided by the cards in the pack with one of the ending points by using signposts and suggestions for new strands to shape the narrative. It’s great fun to pick cards at random and make use of the pictures and words on them as inspiration, or you can be more set and choose cards of your choice to create a story. It works every time and is a brilliant way of firing a child’s imagination. Try it...

Each one is guaranteed to unlock your imagination.
