Adults¬†be warned.¬†In this unique Furious Think favourite, we don't just stick to the point of view of the good guys. After all, what are stories without both heroes and villains? ūüĎĽ

How it works: We provide a story problem and young people put their creative thinking skills to the test to come up with imaginative solutions and ideas. There are 111 scenarios.

Overall, kids will:

  • come up with genius story twists, motives¬†& alternate realities
  • decide how they could fracture a few fairy tales
  • figure out¬†how¬†their hero will overcome challenges
  • come up with what deep dark childhood secrets¬†their villains are hiding and what plans they have to wreak havoc on the world (bwa-ha-ha!)
  • practice the art of show don't tell & imagine compelling backstories

For educators, this e-book also serves as an incredible source of story prompts! Kids can practice writing scenes or full stories (as well as outline writing, character sketches, dialogues, screenplays). They can also practice visual storytelling, including comic strips, storyboards, illustrations.

FYI This e-book can be used collaboratively, making for some amazing creative discussions. Or, kids/teens can use it independently, thinking about the solutions on their own.

Age range: It really depends. We would say the minimum age is roughly 9 or 10-ish, and there is no max age. Please check out the sample pages above!
