Bowmore Road Alpha Workshops

Recently, Story Planet teamed up with Ms. O’Neil’s classes (grade 6 and 7) at Bowmore Road Public School in order to create a number of wacky and wonderful stories. This collaboration resulted in some fantastic tales, including one featuring a pinball machine that transports its players into a spooky pinball universe, and another detailing the struggles of a trio of adventurers waging war in a futuristic jungle world over a golden rat! Check out some of the amazing illustrations based on the stories, drawn by Callen Schaub, below.
