Create Your Own Version VERY LAST CASTLE with This Free PDF

The Very Last Castle turns three years old today (you can get your copy here), so I’m going to get wild and celebrate . . . by sharing a PDF.

Yep, that’s how I get wild these days.

But I actually really like this PDF, and I think you might find it useful with kids. When I was out promoting The Very Last Castle three years ago, I wanted some sort of element in the presentation where kids could make something. So I whipped up this Very Last Castle mini book.

With the mini book, kids can create their own version of the story. You want alligators? You can have alligators. Ghosts? Ghosts!

The kids I’ve worked with have come up with all sorts of great ideas. After completing the story, it can be cut and folded to become a little book.

I made these instructions to show how to do that.

If you use this with kids, let me know! I’m at scopenotes (at) gmail (dot) com.
