I’m very pleased to say that the RFU has commissioned me to write a ‘live’ story for the duration of the rugby union Six Nations tournament this spring.
Called Foul Play: Six Nations, the story will be published in eight ten- to twelve-minute reads on Monday mornings, so it can be read in school at some point during the week. Or at home.
The ideal age group for the story is Y3 to Y7. But it’s pretty flexible.
Each chapter will be packed with adventure, a jaw-dropping cilff hanger and plenty of culture, as the children in the story are going to be sent on a treasure hunt around the rugby capitals of Europe, including Paris, Rome and Edinburgh.
It will feature Danny and Charlotte, the heroes of my Foul Play books, published by Puffin. And the storylines will be influenced by Six Nations events on and off the field.
Foul Play: Six Nations will be available on the RFU’s education resources website. I’ll put a link here as soon as I have one.
The publication dates are all Mondays: Feb 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29; plus March 7, 14 and 21.
The story is free to all. But you do need to subscribe to the RFU education website to access it. (An easy task.) There is more information about it here.
Thanks for reading.
