We love coming in to schools
Last week we were lucky enough to do a reading of our forthcoming book, The Making of Planet IK, to a roomful of Reception children from Primrose Hill Primary School.
November 16th is World Tolerance Day and given recent events in the UK as well as global uncertainties, there is no doubt that its becoming ever more important to teach people about tolerance, be that of differences in languages, race or belief.
We recently trialed our story-writing workshop with the highly impressive Year 5 children at Brentfield Primary School. See some lovely feedback we had from a parent:
A huge part of what we do at Rapscallion Press is encourage new talent, and we’re delighted to announce the launch of the Rapscallion Press Illustration Prize, in association with the University of Worcester.
A big thank you to the schools we’ve visited recently – we’ve really enjoyed meeting you:

The next book in the philosophy series is Journey to the Afterlife.
Our intention is to challenge and inspire, to create a generation of free and original thinkers.
We’re not taking away any of big words or challenging philosophical concepts. Kids ask a lot of questions, because they’re instinctive philosophers. We want to help them explore these questions properly, and remember how important it is to question the world around them.
The first book in our math series, How Old is Great Grandpa, is in the process of illustration. It’s a mathematical romp through history and evolution for 5-9 year olds and it was inspired by Jean-Luc Fromental and Joelle Jolivet’s 365 Penguins.
We are currently developing the content for the first books in our Sustainability series.
The A-Z of Climate Change is an illustrated alphabet of how children see the issue of climate change. The A – Z of Sustainability explores the complexity of sustainability challenges in children’s terms and develop a new understanding of the need for system change.
