Storytelling takes many forms - and in this episode, the supremely talented Rhianna Pratchett explains to Helen why writing for video games is such a uniquely challenging, enjoyable and satisfying way to do exactly that; and how she has now used that experience to create a ‘choose your own adventure’ book where, as in a game, the reader’s choices can genuinely change the direction of the narrative.
A resources pack, including teaching notes, planning sheets, working wall elements and more is available to support this episode at bit.ly/AIYCRhiannapack. This episode is divided into three sections, which can be listened to in one go, as a sequence spread over several days, or in isolation. If you only have time to listen to one, we recommend section 2, which includes Rhianna reading an extract from Crystal of Storms, with Helen making the reader choices!
